Notes

T. costata   is known from parthenogenetic populations in Central and Eastern Europe, as well as in some areas in the Caucasus, while bisexual populations are restricted to southern Romania, the Balkans, Anatolia, Israel, most of the Caucasus, and Crimea ( Golovatch 2008, Golovatch 2012). Quite often specimens are found in caves ( Golovatch 2008). In the Abrau Peninsula, the species was collected from the upper soil and lower leaf litter layers.
