Morphology: Most Middle Eastern specimens resemble the nominate form (as found also in western and central Europe) perfectly ( Figure 2View FIGURES 2-7). Exceptions are individuals from Çankırı and Kahramanmaraş provinces which predominantly have the middle bands on the elytra elongated (as in C. germanica  forma sobrina and in C. germanica lyciae  ) but lack the setae on the anterior and posterior edges of the pronotum, as described for the forma bipunctata ( Kraatz, 1890)  ( Figure 3View FIGURES 2-7). Specimens from the Aegaean coast near Izmir resemble C. germanica lyciae  with their very dark uniformly brownish-black colouration, but lack the diagnostic enlarged elytral middle bands and the additional setae on the pronotum ( Figure 4View FIGURES 2-7). Specimens from Istanbul, Bilecik and Zonguldak provinces appear to be morphological intergrades between the nominate form and C. germanica muelleri  with predominantly very shiny, blueish-green elytra (which are rather rare but present in all other populations; Figure 5View FIGURES 2-7).

Distribution: In Turkey, Cylindera germanica germanica  appears to be largely limited to the western, northern and eastern parts of the country with predominantly summer-hot Mediterranean or temperate Oceanic climates ( Figure 1View FIGURE 1). Records from the arid continental climate of Central Anatolia (e.g. Akşehir) and the southeastern part of the country are scarce. Within Iran, C. g. germanica  appears also restricted to the humid, temperate climate of the Elburz mountain range and the Caspian Sea coast in the north of the country ( Figure 1View FIGURE 1). Records from northeastern and eastern Iran (Razavi-Chorasan and Golestan provinces, e.g. Azadbakhsh and Nozari 2015) should be critically checked for confusion with C. descendens  .
