Distribution in Turkey. Bolu, Adıyaman, Osmaniye, Çankırı, Sinop ( Háva et al. 1998); Ankara, Niğde, Mersin ( Açar 2008); Bolu, Osmaniye, Adıyaman, Malatya ( Sikes & Venables 2013a, b); Eskişehir ( Altunsoy et al. 2017); Batman ( Açikgöz & Açikgöz 2018).

Remarks. Widely distributed Palaearctic species, known from Europe to Western Siberia and the west of China (Růžička 2015). In central Europe, the species prefers forests and is most abundant in dry coniferous forests (e.g., Růžička 1994). In Turkey, its distribution is scattered and records are known from only a few provinces ( Fig. 27 View Figure ). Here we provide the first record from Konya Province.
