DistributionIt is a Palaearctic species widespread in western and central Europe. The species is widely scattered in England, Wales and Scotland, but fairly widespread in southern central England. Has not been recorded from Ireland.
StatusScarce, but may be frequent at some sites, particularly in southern England. This species has apparently shown a long-term decline. The decline has probably been a result of loss of calcareous grassland to arable and succession to scrub and woodland.
