Distribution

Japan, * UAE, * Yemen.

Remarks

This species was originally described from Japan and perhaps also occurs in China ( Belokobylskij & Maetô2009). The record of this species from the Arabian Peninsula strongly widens its known geographic distribution, and it is likely to also occur in the intervening part of Asia. Specimens from Yemen and the UAE possess a distinctive dark body colour.
