Ecology

Phenology

Flowering mid-June to mid-July, depending on altitude and exposition.

Habitat

Rock crevices and ledges of calcareous cliffs in subalpine and alpine zone. Often together with Arabis bryoides  , Asperula doerfleri  , Coeloglossum viride  , Oxytropis dinarica  , Oxytropis purpurea  , Saxifraga  spp., Sempervivum ciliosum  , Sideritis raeseri  , Thlaspi bellidifolium  and Viola eximia  . ― New for Albania.

Distribution

This species was previously thought to be a local endemic of Galičica Mt in F.Y.R. Macedonia. It has since been found on Mt Jablanica (a limestone massif east of Mt Shebeniku near the border with southwestern F.Y.R. Macedonia) and Mt Boutsi in northern Greece. It probably occurs on other limestone mountains, e.g., a collection from the summit of Mt Cajupi near Gjirokaster in southern Albania has yet to be verified. We now confirm its occurrence in Albania based on collections first made in 2007 from the central part of Dry Mt, and in 2011 from other localities on the mountain ridge. The localities in Albania adjoin those in F.Y.R. Macedonia.
