Accuracy of map:

Map was created using maps of scale 1:20,000,000 and data from herbarium specimens.

The projection:

"Alber's Equal Area Conic for Russia", 9, 1001, 7, 100, 0, 44, 68, 0, 0.

Basic content:

Map is a vector file consisting of points. Locations of species are represented by points.

Accuracy of the qualifier:

Light-colored points represent species locations referenced in published sources. Dark-colored points represent locations from which herbarium samples (BIN, VIR) were taken.

Method of map construction:

The species occurs in areas from the Western Mediterranean to Iran. The northeastern part of species distribution area lies within the former USSR. Here, the species is distributed mainly in the Caucasus, partly in the Crimea and in the western part of Kopet-Dag. The species distribution area is presented as three separate regions: Crimean (a southern part of the Crimean peninsula), Caucasian (almost the entire Caucasus, except for the high mountains) and Central Asian (northwestern area of Kopet-Dag). Regions were constructed by generalizing available data. The BIN and VIR herbariums, published maps of species distribution (Grossheim, 1952), and published data (Galushko, 1980) were used to construct the species distribution area.
