The species is most likely of Western Palaearctic origin, but has an almost cosmopolitan distribution today. Outside the Palaearctic region, it has been introduced in the Australian region ( New Zealand), as well as in South America ( Colombia) and North America ( ASSING & WUNDERLE 1995); recently it was also reported from South Africa for the first time ( NEWTON 2006).

For additional records from La Palma, Canary Islands, where the species is very common in various biotopes, see ASSING & WUNDERLE (1999). The species is apparently absent from El Hierro, where it was not found in spite of extensive field work in December and January 1999 /2000. The records by FRANZ (1996), according to whom H. capillaricornis  is quite common in the island, refer to H. canariensis  ; the corresponding material from the Franz collection was examined (see section on H. canariensis  ).
