Range Description

Its type locality is "Hercegovina: Beruica near Avtovac". However, even if this refers to an existing sub-population, it should be a small, remote, sub-population. Since 1901, there is no published information as to if this location was successfully recollected and the existence of this population was reinforced. Therefore this is not considered in the extent of occurrence calculation.
The main area of this species is in southern Montenegro and northern Albania between the lower Moraca and the Drin valleys. Despite of intense field activity in recent years (Zoltan Fehr, pers comm.), this species could not be found north-westwards of the lower Moraca valley.
There are at least 35-50 known sub-populations (Fehr et al. 2001 and the Hungarian Natural History Museum (HNHM), unpublished data) and there is no reason to suppose that the area of occupancy (200 km2), extent of occurrence (2,400 km2) or the number of locations are declining or extremely fluctuating.
