Wachkoo, Maqbool, Akbar & Sharaf, 2018
The specimens of this species were handpicked by dislodging a stone in a pine forest area from Thanamandi region of Rajouri district, located on the southerly foothills of the Pir Panjal Himalaya in the Indian State of Jammu and Kashmir. The region represents a transition zone between the subtropical Jammu and the temperate Kashmir provinces. The climate is broadly subtropical, although the foothill areas along the Pir Panjal range show dry temperate conditions, while subalpine and alpine conditions prevail higher up in the mountains. The vegetation mainly consists of Chir-pine (Pinus roxburghii) forests, broad-leaved deciduous forests, broad-leaved evergreen forests and scrub forests, interspersed with frequent grassland patches and agricultural croplands.
A member of the chinensis species group.
