Range Description

This species is native and endemic to the Balkan Peninsula (Euro+Med Plantbase 2006-2010). It has a disjunct distribution and can be divided into three centres of occurrence: one centre is in mountains of Herzegovina namely Prenj, Plasa, Muharnica, Čvrsnica, Čabulja with rare localities in the latter two mountains which are the northwest border of its range (D. Soljan pers. comm. 2010). The second centre comprises southeast Montenegro (Mt Žijovo, Mt Zeletin, Mt Prokletije, Kučke), southwest Serbia-Kosovo (Mt Prokletije- Mt. Koprivnik, Mt Hajla, Mt Žljeb, Mt Maja Rusolija) and probably neighbouring north Albania. A relatively large population was found in Montenegro very close (ca 200 m) to the Albanian border (V. Stevanović pers. obs. 2010). The third part of the range is situated in southwest Bulgaria in the Rila Mountains. It has a limited distribution in Bulgaria with an extent of occurrence smaller than 5,000 km².
