Distribution. Type locality: Italy; Austria. The species is known from Austria, Azerbaijan, Czech, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Poland, Romania, Russia (Adygea, Krasnodar) and Slovakia.

Remarks. Hercostomus caudatus (Loew)  , originally described in the genus Gymnopternus Loew, 1857  , has typical for males of Sybistroma  shortened antennal pedicel and tripartite arrangement of basiventral lobes and hypandrium in addition to elongate setulose apicoventral epandrial lobes. Therefore, a new combination for the species is here proposed.
