 Comments
       
  Comment: Listed as Lower Risk, Near Threatened on IUCN Red List (2000)  
    Status: IUCN - Lower Risk (nt)  
    Comments: Sokolov et al. (1982, 1987b) gave karyological and spermatozoal characters that distinguished this species from S. napaea and S. pseudonapaea. Pallas' type specimen was probably not preserved (Ognev, 1963b:33). Review of taxonomy, characteristics, ecology, and distribution available for Europe (Pucek, 1982; Mitchell-Jones, 1999), Austria (Spitzenberger, et al., 1995), East Baltic region (Timm et al., 1998), E Carpathian Mtns of Slovakia (Danko, 1994), Sumava Mtns of SW Bohemia ...
