This taxon is distributed from Southern Europe through North Africa, Asia Minor, the Caucasus and the Near East to Central Asia and South Siberia. The second subspecies - P. rufipes latior  Pic, 1895 - is only known from some regions in Syria and Turkey ( Danilevsky 2018a). Phytoecia rufipes  is an oligophagous species whose larvae develop in the roots of various herbaceous plants, particularly in Foeniculum vulgare  , Ferula galbanifera  and other Apiaceae  . The adults can be found on their host plants from May to July ( Bense 1995).
