European species, known from Czech Republic, France, Germany, Great Britain, Ireland, Italy (mainland, Sicily, Sardinia), Spain (mainland); Sardinian populations have been recorded in thermophilous Quercus spp.woods, in Mediterraneanshrubs as well as in maquis, from sea level to 1000 m and occasionally in caves ( Zapparoli 2009); its presence in Corsica needs confirmation as precise evidence for its occurrence here is lacking.
