The species and its forms are distributed over the Maiella massif and the Montagne del Morrone (type locality: Monte Morrone) in the Parco Nazionale della Maiella, nearly on all high mountains of the Parco Nazionale d'Abbruzzo, and on the summits between the two parks. C. [grovesiana] scissa is a very localised summit form which occurs above 2,700 m on the Monte Amaro (Maiella massif), surrounded by typical C. grovesiana. Special forms are known from the Monte Marsicano (1,950 m), and from the Gole del Sagittario (Alzona and Alzona Bisacchi 1938).
