The recent evolutionary history of M. pygmaeus is predicted as follows using molecular markers: (1) the reduction of the geographical distribution of the species to the Iberian, Italian and Balkan peninsulas, and possibly southern France, during glaciations and re-colonization of northern Europe from its southern refuges (2) The maintenance of high diversity in Iberia and Italy (and possibly southern France) during contraction periods, and bottlenecks in the Balkans; (3) Introgression of the Italian-French lineage in northern Spain, naturally or through trade.
