Dear Babak Gharali,
You need a Kuznetsov's key with descriptions of several Palaearctic
Pelecocera species (without genitalia figures, but with description
Pelecocera persiana Kuzn.; sic! - presumably Pelecocera lugubris is not valid

Палеарктики // Latvijas Entomologs (=Латвийский
энтомолог). - 1989. - L. 32. - L. 80-85.

>Also I don▓t know if other species have been reported from Palearctic region since these publications or not.
>Please let me know are there any special key for species of this genus and figure of their genitalia or not.
