Distribution.

This species is subcosmopolitan. It is adventive in North America where it is known from Nova Scotia (Pictou County, CNC) to eastern Iowa (Muscatine County, Doug A. Veal pers. comm. 2009), south to east-central Texas (Riley 2011), central Louisiana (Grant Parish, CNC) and southern Florida (Peck and Thomas 1998: 23) in the east, and from Oregon (Hatch 1953: 147) to southern California (Fall 1901a: 47) in the west. The first inventoried specimen collected on this continent was found prior to 1853 (LeConte 1853c: 386, as Trechicus umbripennis   ). Basilewsky (1953a: 108) believed the species originated along the coast of the Indian Ocean where it is very abundant in rubbish and groundnut.
