Mallosia herminae, occuring in Azerbaijan, Iran, and Eastern Turkey, has been described from Araxesthal (Araks river valley, probably in Azerbaijan part) by Edmund Reitter in 1890 [▽]. Like most species of the genus, Mallosia herminae is ecologically associated with big Apiaceae plants close to Ferula and Prangos in the roots of which its larvae develop.
Body length: 16 - 40 mm Life cycle: 1 year Adults in: May - June Host plant: Ferula spp. and Prangos spp. (Apiaceae) Distribution: Azerbaijan, Iran, Turkey (Gümüshane, Van, Sirnak, Bingöl, Erzurum; ❖)
The depicted mounted beetles were collected in Sīroo (سرو) environs (1900-2000 m a.s.l., Sumay-ye Beradust district, Urmia county, Āzarbāyjān-e Gharbī province, Iran) on May 30-31, 2017.
