Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorDistribution According to Pinkster (1993) E. berilloni is known from the northwestern part of Spain (own observations; G. de Bikufia, 1989); the western part of the Pyrenees; those parts of France which drain into the Atlantic, except for the higher Plateau Central and the drainage systems of the Loire and Vilaine; recently the species has been found in the drainage system of the Rhone (own exploration); the Channel Islands (own exploration); Belgium (Stephensen & Hynes, 1953; own exploration); Luxembourg (Hoffmann, 1963); the southeastern provinces of the Netherlands (Holthuis, 1956; own exploration); the southwestern parts of the German Federal republic (Boecker, 1926; Schellenberg, 1942; Besch, 1968); in 1987 the author also found this species in Bavaria. In spite of intensive exploration outside this area by the present author and many other colleagues, the species has never been found outside this area.  [details]
