Remarks: Species belong to the nobilei   group in which few new species were described from Europe in recent years (Pilato & Bertolani 2005, Pilato et al. 2005). This species has a mainly European distribution with single reports from New Zealand, North and South America ( McInnes 1994 a). Non-European records should be carefully re-examined, using integrative (molecular and morphology) taxonomy, as these could represent a complex of cryptic species.
