The distribution area extends from İzmir and Denizli, through coastal parts, till east of Ceyhan river, at Adana north of Nur Mountains; towards the east it is replaced by T. jordani. (Schütt and Şeşen 1989). Through basins it can extend inwards, particularly in depression areas, as understood by its common presence in Burdur, Denizli, and Afyon provinces. Such occurrences is blocked by continuous Taurus ranges, but in the east it can be found in the tributaries of Ceyhan river (in prov. Kahramanmaraş). Fauna Europea (Bank et al. 2006) state that the species is also found on the Greek island of Crete.
