Distribution in Turkey. Adana, Isparta, Kahramanmaraş, Sivas, Adıyaman, Erzurum ( Háva et al. 1998); Erzurum, Bursa, İstanbul ( Schawaller 1981); Burdur, Mersin, Adana, Niğde ( Açar 2008); Edirne ( Bana and Beyarslan 2012); Ankara ( Özdemir and Sert 2009); Eskişehir ( Altunsoy et al. 2017).

Remarks. Widely distributed Transpalaearctic species, known from Europe to Japan (Růžička 2015). An error in the map provided by Háva et al. (1998) locating İspir in Van rather than Erzurum is corrected here for this species. Widely distributed through most of Turkey ( Fig. 18 View FIGURES 17–20 ). Here reported for the first time from Antalya, Bitlis, Konya, Mardin and Siirt Provinces.
