The 2 spp. were rediscovered in an area of irrigated hay meadows in La Cerdanya (Catalonia, NE Iberian Peninsula) in Aug. 2005, the first confirmed record for the former sp, from the Iberian Peninsula since 1959 and the first ever record for the latter for Catalonia. In 2006, a much fuller survey of the whole potential breeding area of the 2 spp. was carried out and in the whole area only one small breeding colony (of both spp.) was located. This is thought to be the only known population of S. pedemontanum in the Iberian Peninsula. Details of the habitat and threats to the sp. are given.
