Serapias stenopetala is a species endemic to Algeria and Tunisia (de Blair and Boussouak 2002; Delforge 2001, 2005). Maire (1952-1987) considers this to be a subspecies. It has been observed in El Kala, at Guelma (l'Aouara) and between Annaba and Lake Fetzara. At the latter site it has not been seen again. Quzel and Santa (1963) don't recognize this sighting. Four localities were found near the lakes Mellah and Oubera. In Tunisia, its presence in Kroumirie has been confirmed. Its extent of occurrence is below 5,000 km and its area of occupation is very small and below 500 km.
