Remarks. The species is known from several European countries ranging from Italy to North Scandinavia, including northern European part of Russia. Turkish specimens (T) have antennae different than European (E): stylus is 1.1–1.5X longer than postpedicel (E) but 2.5–2.7X in (T), and postpedicel is 1.9–2.8X longer than wide (E), and 1.9–2.1X in (T). Also legs are paler in T specimens, without dark ventral stripe on femora. However, male genitalia are identical in all details including triangular structures on inner part of cerci, swollen right epandrial lamella, dorsally incised left epandrial lamella, etc. These are the first records for Turkey.
