Records from Iran.

Tehran Province - " Frauenfeldia elburensis   " Starmühlner and Edlauer (1957).


Starmühlner and Edlauer (1957) originally described this species as Frauenfeldia elburensis   . However, the genus name Frauenfeldia   is preoccupied, and thus, the species of this genus have been re-assigned to Belgrandiella   , Boleana   , Graziana   and Sarajana   ( Radoman 1983). Due to the shape of the aperture in original description (see Starmühlner and Edlauer 1957) we affiliate this species to the genus Belgrandiella   .


Iran, only known from the locus typicus (Gelandoah, 60 km NE of Tehran).
