Remarks. This species had been previously recorded from Sardinia only by Costa (1884) and Bezzi (1892); it was consequently listed from “ Sardinia ” by other authors (see above). The above, recently examined material confirms the old records.

Distribution. A European species ranging from southern-most Scandinavia to the Pyrenees, Sardinia,

Sicily and Greece, eastwards to the Ukraine ( Rozkošný 2004).
