Ptinella britannica   occurs in Europe, especially the continent’ s western states ( Azerbaijan, Austria, Denmark, Germany, France, Great Britain, Hungary, Italy, Netherlands, Sweden, and Switzerland), and it is reported from North America ( Sörensson 2003, 2015). It is listed on the German Red List of endangered species (Ziegler and Suikat 1994; Binot et al. 1998).

Ptinella britannica   inhabits deciduous forests and is most often collected from mole nests. It is sometimes found under fallen, rotting leaves and decaying wood ( Koch 1989). Wenzel (2005) classified it as a humicole.
