Range Description

The species is listed for Germany, but was not originally recognised by Gler and Meierbrook (2003). The species, along with other species of Bythinella, have been re-established from their synonym. The type locality for Bythiospeum sterkianum sterkianum in Baden-Wurttemberg is specified by two localities - Epfenhofen am Randen and Grenzach Horn - the subspecies lauterborni only from the locus typicus "well house at Eichstetten am Kaiserstuhl" a site which must be currently regarded as lost (Falkner and Niederhfer 2008). The presence in Switzerland is uncertain, although one location lies close to the border.
