thank you for your visit and kind words! My literature (Tolman/Lewington) says that E. gorge would be confined as an endemic species to highest elevations of central European mountain chains, living there in a number of isolated colonies since the end of ice age. Could be that if you meet that species in Turkey, this would be a new discovery - and it could be.
With thanks, and best wishes,
Erebia gorge. (50)
