Range DescriptionThis species is only known from the Iberian Peninsula.
It is present in all the Mediterranean part of Spain, occupying a total of 40 provinces (GTLI 2003, Blanco Villero and SÃ¡ez BolaÃ±o 2007). Its northern distribution limit is in the surroundings of the Cantabrian Range and Pyrenees, excepting a locality in Guipuzcoa province and a few localities in Huesca province. Most localities are in the north in the 'Meseta' and in the Sistema Central.
In Portugal overall, there are 12 known localities in the north and centre (only five published: GTLI 2003). Apart from one northern locality, the unpublished records refer to localities concentrated in a relatively small area in the centre, 80 to 100 km north of Lisbon (J.M. Grosso-Silva and P. Soares-Vieira pers. obs. 2009). Most of the unpublished records were obtained after 2000 (the oldest dates from 1975) (J.M. Grosso-Silva and P. Soares-Vieira pers. obs. 2009).
