Distribution comment: Limited to Madeira, Porto Santo and the Azores; citations from Portugal, Italy and the Balkans probably refer to other species of the genevensis group (Bosmans et al. 2017b); the record from Latvia is presumably based on a misidentification.
Global distribution (WSC 2023): Madeira, Azores
