South Carpathian


R, e, tp,?

South Carpathian endemic species with affinity to wet forested habitats. From Slovakia, only one questionable historical record is documented from the vicinity of the Veľaty Village ( Daday 1889), significantly isolated from the rest of the area of its known distribution in the Southern Carpathians ( Kime and Enghoff 2011, Kime and Enghoff 2013). Its occurrence in Slovakia, however, can be supported by the recent findings of P. transylvanicus Daday, 1889 in nearby locations within the Eastern Slovak Plain ( Haľková and Mock 2018), the species with similar biogeography and ecology as P. subscabratus .
