Basic contents:

The map is a vector file consisting of a polygon and dots. Point localities of the species are represented by dots, the area of possible species distribution is represented by the polygon.

Accuracy of the qualifier:

Dark dots represent information on the species localities from herbarium specimens, the rest (light) dots represent data from published sources; the polygon is based on generalized information from published sources and herbarium specimens.

Method of the map construction:

The species is endemic to Caucasus and distributed in Ciscaucasia, where it occurs on clayey slopes in low mountains and foothills of central part of the North Caucasus. Its distribution in the south is limited by high mountains of the Caucasian Range, in the north by the zone of dry steppes of the Krasnodar and Stavropol Territories. The range is represented by a polygon, which embraces dots of factual species localities in Ciscaucasia. The herbarium materials of LE and a published map of the species range (Grossheim, 1950) were used for the range construction.
