Movement / Home Range

eastern shore of Lake Huleh, Israel. In 1955 the species was recorded again, in the northwest edge of the Hula swamps, just east of the extant 'En Agmon spring (Y. Werner pers. comm. March 2012). It seems possible that it could once also be found in adjacent parts of the Syrian Arab Republic. It was recently found in a very circumscribed area of the 200 ha (2 kmē, here taken as the maximum possible extent of occurrence) Hula Nature Reserve, (at 65 m asl), which is less than 5 km away from its former sites, and surveys are currently underway to determine if it may occur elsewhere in the Hula Valley (S. Gafny pers. comm. March 2012). from
