Range Description

The European endemic species has an oceanic distribution and is found from Ireland, Britain, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Germany, Netherlands, to Poland and an old record from Kaliningrad. In Ireland, Spermodea lamellata is common only in broadleaf woods in northern and western counties but not the central limestone plain. In southern Britain it is extinct except for a small number of isolated and vulnerable sites and is evidently in decline over most of Ireland (Byrne et al. 2009).
