Ecological notes.

950-1671 m, altitudinal range probably wider; montane and submontane species, recorded from localities in the Supramediterranean and Montane belts; the old record from Ajaccio by Pocock (1894) is questionable as the locality is outside the usual altitudinal range of the species; mostly in Fagus sylvatica  woods (3 sites) but also in Quercus  woods (1 site). See Iorio (2010b).
