The species is restricted to a very small hot spring (Petzea) in Romania, with an area of occupancy of less than 1 km². In 1998, the habitat was observed to be in good condition and the species was very common. However in 2000, the site was observed to be heavily polluted with litter, and that the public bath that the hot spring feeds was being re-built and modernised which is predicted to extract larger quantities of water from the spring.
|Range Description:||Western Romania: hot spring Petzea (or Baile Epiropesti) close to Oradea, about 10,000 m².|
