Remarks.

Species widely spread in Europe, West Asia and North Africa (introduced?), introduced in North and South America, Kuriles, Hawaii and St. Helena. In mainland Italy it is mostly known from disturbed habitats such as reafforestations, cultivated areas and urban areas; also present in open habitats, occasionally in woodlands; from sea level to 2200 m ( Minelli and Iovane 1987, Zapparoli 2006). The presence of Lithobius forficatus  in Corsica needs to be confirmed. Doubtfully recorded also from Sardinia ( Zapparoli 2009).
