The western-most border of its range is in eastern France (Colmar) and western Germany (Saarlouis). There is an isolated occurrence in Sweden which is the northernmost site.
Outside Europe, this species also occurs in the western part of Turkey, where it has a scattered distribution (Hausdorf, 1990).
