P. alepidotus is found at three, possibly four locations (Cetina river basin and to the Livanjsko, Glamocko, and Grahovo Polje karsts), with a continuing decline in area of occupancy (AOO) due to water extraction, in habitat quality due to agricultural pollution and introduced species, and a decline in the number of subpopulations as the subpopulation in the Cetina river basin is thought to be now extinct.
|Range Description:||It is known only from the Cetina river basin and to the Livanjsko, Glamocko, and Grahovo Polje karsts in Croatia and Bosnia-Hercegovina. It is possibly absent in the Cetina river basin (Mrakovcic, M. pers comm).|
Native:Bosnia and Herzegovina; Croatia
