Remarks: A Neotropical species with a doubtful report from Finland) ( McInnes 1994 a). It seems that this species is limited to South America.

The Ramazzotti   (1964 a) report is uncertain as he did not find eggs and thus was not able to confirm whether his specimens belong to M. intermedius   or M. subintermedius   (see remarks for M. intermedius   above).
