World distribution. Greece ( World Spider Catalog, 2016) and Turkey (this study). Remarks. Two adult females are found in May from surrounding of Salt Lake in Central Anatolia. Both specimens were collected under the debris cluster in steppe ecosystems. Another female was collected under stone from step area in Bolvadin. Bosselaers (2009) said that this species is clearly myrmecophylic. Although collecting sites of this species were suitable places for ants, we did not observe this symbiosis.
