Range Description

The type locality for this species is: "Rozsly-tmb, Forrsliget, Izvora-fennsk, springs near Molcsny-tanya (ca. 1,000 m)" [= Muntii Ignis, Statiunea Izvoare, near the hut of late Gbor Molcsny] (Wagner 1941). This locality is in Romania, and it is almost impossible to figure out where has exactly located the Molcsny's hut in 1941. This species has not been found for a long time and has only been refound a few years ago (by Ioan Sirbu, see Falniowski et al. 2009). The area typica was visited by Z. Fehr et al. too (unpublished material in the collection of HNHM), and they found this species in numerous springs and streams in the Ignis Plateau but only within a few square kilometres range.
