The exact locality / localities of S. iranicum is unknown.

Alborz is a large mountain range stretching in the north of Iran.

Last summer, during my cycling trip I crossed this range couple of times and found some semps.
I think it's S. iranicum.

Plants were photographed  on a Chalus road, close to village Siyah Bisheh, in a canyon on 2270m.

Photo of a habitat. Semps growing together with Iris species above the creak in a canyon.

Me, on a mountain pass on 3300m high above the canyon where I found Sempervivums. 
It's interesting that I found them in more 'green' environment than this.
