Despite this being a widespread species, there is little published on its ecology and ethology.
Widely distributed across England, although absent from several counties. There is just one record from Wales (Caernarvonshire). Abroad, the species is found in most European countries from Scandinavia to the Mediterranean (Lomholdt, 1975-76). There are also records from the Eastern Palaearctic (Korea) (Bitsch et al., 1997).
