Stigmus europaeus Tsuneki, 1954; Stigmus verhoeffi Tsuneki, 1954.
This is by far the more common species of Stigmus in Britain.
Current records come from South Devon to Kent and northwards to Yorkshire. Richards (1980) gives Cornwall in addition, with the range extending to Staffordshire and North Lincolnshire.
Lomholdt (1984) states that the species is uncommon but widespread in Fennoscandia and Denmark, spreading through central and northern Europe eastwards to Kazakhstan.
