I don't want to put down your contribution to the biogeographic
terminology, but I seem to remember a German term "Wanderrelikt" for the
species that survived the glaciation in - what you call - "wandering
refugia." I don't have Walter & Straka's "Arealkunde" but I am almost sure
that you can find the "Wanderrelikt" there.
