Range Description

Although Fauna Europaea (Bank et al. 2006) lists the distribution as Balearic Islands (Mallorca Island Menorca Island and Pityuses Islands) and Spain (mainland), Martinez-Orti (pers. comm. 2009) lists the range as mainland only and restricts the range to Andalucia. According to Martinez-Orti (pers. comm. 2009) it is now only known from Rio Guadalquivir at the junction with the tributaries near Sevilla. The old records, which have not been reconfirmed from Granada and Alicante during recent surveys, are considered to be this species, whereas the records from other regions, Murcia and Valencia, are considered to be potentially different species.
