There is a Jovibarba heuffelii from the locality Anabakanak. I have long wondered where this place could be. I think that I have now found a good candidate for this locality. In my view, it could be a corruption or misreading for Arabakonak. Arabakonak or Araba Konak is a now more or less abandoned mountain pass that connects Sofia with Botevgrad in Bulgaria. The now more commonly used name for this pass is Botevgradski Prokhod (Botevgrad Pass) and its altitude is sometimes indicated as 926 meters, but I also found 980 meters.
Of course, we only can be sure that this is the right place when someone goes there and really finds heuffelii.
