New data on the distribution and ecology of Oxythyrea albopicta (Motschulsky, 1845) (Coleoptera, Scarabaeidae Cetoniinae)

Abstract : 

Oxythyrea albopicta (Motschulsky, 1845)is a scattered, uncommon species widespread from Eastern Europe to the Tibetan Plateau. Authors provide a significant number of new records, mostly from eastern Turkey, including the first ones from Turmenistan and Afghanistan. All known records are summarized in two maps. In spite of its scarcity O. albopicta is observed in very different enviroments and its alleged scarcity may partly depend from unaccurate samplings and confusion with the similar and much more abundant O. cinctella
