Range Description

This species is distributed throughout central, southern and eastern Europe, but appears to be rare or very localised in most countries. Examples of countries where it is widespread and not rare include Greece and the Czech Republic. In Germany it is also widely distributed but missing in the northern German states, and very rare but probably under-documented (B. Bche pers. comm. 2009). In Romania it is still present in many populations in Transylvania, but with small numbers (P. Istrtae pers. comm. 2009). In Hungary this species is very rare, with a few sporadic localities known from the hilly regions (O. Merkl pers. comm. 2009). It is rare in the Ukraine and absent from Slovakia. In Spain and Portugal it has a very restricted distribution and it is confined to four known populations in the north (Vives 2001). In Portugal it has been recorded very recently (Soares-Vieira and Grosso-Silva 2003) from a single locality in the northern-most area.
Also reported from the European part of Turkey without exact locality (Althoff and Danilevsky 1997).
