Trypoxylon figulus sensu Richards (1980) and Lomholdt (1984) is now considered to comprise three separate species. Knowles (2009) explains the history and provides guidance on the identification of the three species.
This first map shows records for Trypoxylon figulus agg. The second map shows T. figulus iso. Pulawski: 1984.
Reasonably well distributed across southern England northwards to Yorkshire, and in south Wales. Not recorded from Scotland, Ireland or the Channel Islands.
Bitsch et al. (2001) consider it to be found throughout the Holarctic, although very rare in the east of Russia.
