Previous records. Linnavuori (1973: 48; Har Meron).

Biology. This species lives on and under grasses. In many countries it is confined to seashores, and the records from high altitudes on Har Hermon are therefore unusual (prior to the current work, the highest recorded altitude had been 1000m from the Canary Islands).
