Palaearctic ( Oosterbroek 2017). Karelian record is the northernmost one. Closest locations are in Poland, Lithuania and the Republic of Bashkortostan in Russia.

Ecology

Poorly known, though associations with dead wood and wood-destroying fungi were reported ( Ševčík 2006, Wiedenska 2007). This species was collected from a windthrown aspen, colonised by 15 species of macrofungi (Table 1).
