It occurs from North Africa across Southern Europe far into Asia. The northernmost populations in Central Europe are located in the inner-alpine dry valleys.
1 specimen at Oorderen, Antwerpen Noord (AN), 2007-05-30, leg. W. Van Ginhoven. Since the species was found in a large train station, it is very likely that this species travelled by train.
The larvae feed on old, dead parts of plants, mosses, lichens, algae and soft and fresh plants.
