Range DescriptionThis species is endemic to the marshlands of southeastern Iraq in the Tigris and Euphrates Valleys. It has been recorded only from marshes at the confluence of Tigris and Euphrates Rivers in the vicinity of Al-Qurna, and also downstream near Basra. It possibly occurs in Al-Hawizeh marsh to the east straddling the Iraq-Iran border. It might occur widely in the lower Tigris and Euphrates Valleys, although its range is likely to be limited.
