Sempervivum jackucsii was collected between "Pojan and Podgorje opposite Korca" on Mali i Thatė (Albania) - the part of this monutan that lies in FYR of Macedonia is called Galičica. It was collected in July 1960 by P. Jakucs, in whose honour ioz has been named.

Pojan is a village in Korēė County, name Podgorje is quetionable!

The species only exists as a type plant in the Herbarium of the Museum of Natural History in Budapest, Hungary.

Some say S. jakucsii looks like S. kindingeri, other but that it is close to S. ciliosum.
