Distribution

It is distributed in south Europe, North Africa as far east as Caucasus ( Fontana et al. 2002). In Italy, it is widespread in the whole country (Sicily and Sardinia included), also on several small islands ( Iorio et al. 2019, Massa et al. 2012).

It is a thermophilus species and lives in many different open habitats. It lives in meadow environments, preferably mesoxerophilous; it can frequent mountain stony and arid stony environments. The adults appear from June to October, but it is frequent to observe them in autumn during the mating season ( Fontana et al. 2002, Massa et al. 2012).
