distribution within Europe

France, Spain (Fauna Europaea, 2010).


The case is illustrated, under the name ribasella in the book by Toll (1962a) that was published after his death. Because there was no description, the name became available only by the description by Baldizzone (1982a).


The biology of the species is not known; it may be a seed eater, in which case it should not have been treated in this website.
