Distribution.

European–Western Siberian temperate range: this species appears to be widespread from northern and central Europe (Scandinavia, Finland, the Baltics, Germany, Poland, Belarus) through European Russia and the Urals to East Kazakhstan and SW Siberia (Altai Province, Republic of Altai and Novosibirsk Area).

Remarks.

In the study area, M. sjaelandicum   dominates habitats on the southern slope, where its abundance reaches up to 22 ind./m2.
