Rare species, known from only a few recorded localities (up to ten) from Armenia and Zagros Mts in Iran. Listed as Data Deficient in view of continuing problems with its taxonomy (it is questionable whether this is a valid species) as well as absence of information on its extent of occurrence (which may be larger than the five known specimens suggest), status, ecological requirements and threats.
