Basic contents:

The map is a vector file consisting of a polygon, which represents the area of possible species distribution.

Method of the map construction:

The main part of the species range is situated in Asia Minor (Turkey). In the former USSR, there is the northern part of the general range of the species which is distributed in the southern, mountain part of the Crimean Peninsula (forest glades of the southern slopes of Nikita Yayla). The species range is represented by a polygon constructed after published data (Fedorov, Tzvelev, 1987) and data of the ILDIS database (Roskov et al., 2005).
