Pyropteron koshantschikovi ( Püngeler, 1914)  

( Figs 160, 161 View FIGURES 150–164 )

Chamaesphecia koshantschikovi Püngeler, 1914   : Deutsche Entomologische Zeitschrift Iris, 28: 54, pl. 3 Fig. 10 View FIGURES 3–10 . Holotype ♀: Uzbekistan, Syr-Daria , Baigacum (MFNB).

This large species is poorly known; it has only been collected in a few places in Central Asia.

Barcodes. P. cirgisa   and P. koshantschikovi   are situated more basally in the clade, perhaps suggesting a central Asian origin of this species group. P. koshantschikovi   and P. umbrifera   show an average distance of 6.4%.

Biology and habitat. Similar to previous species, local in low lying salt steppe ( Špatenka et al. 1999). Limonium meyeri Boissier   is reported as host plant by Špatenka et al. (1996). The larva is feeding 2 years in the root.

Distribution. Uzbekistan and eastern Kazakhstan ( Špatenka et al. 1999).

Specimens examined.
