Range Description

Based on the few known specimens, this rarely recorded species probably has a wide distribution in the southern Zagros Mountains and their foothills (Schätti 2001; Rajabizadeh and Rastegar-Pouyani 2006). The type specimen was taken from somewhere between Shiraz, Kazerun and Takt-e Jamshid (Persepolis) in Fars Province, southwestern Iran (Schätti 2001; Rajabizadeh and Rastegar-Pouyani 2006). It has also been recorded from the Chambachid valley on the southern side of the river and on the Paris Massive, five kilometres south of Gharun station, in Lorestan Province (Schätti 2001; Rajabizadeh and Rastegar-Pouyani 2006); and from the locality of Siah makan junction, 57 km northwest of Genaveh city on the road to Behbahan, Bushehr Province (Rajabizadeh and Rastegar-Pouyani 2006. It has also been collected from two localities in Kermanshah Province, without exact localities (Rajabizadeh and Rastegar-Pouyani 2006). Specimens in the southern Zagros Mountains have been collected at around 1,650-3,100 m asl. The specimen from Bushehr Province was collected at an elevation of <100 m asl close to the Persian Gulf (Rajabizadeh and Rastegar-Pouyani 2006).
