Range DescriptionThis species is largely restricted to Europe, where it has been recorded from the UK to eastern Ukraine (Beran 2008, Jurkiewicz-Karnkowska 2008) and from southern Scandinavia to Italy (Strzelec and Krlczyk 2004, Spyra et al. 2007, Welter-Schulte 2009).
The range data for this species is rather incomplete, as at present in some countries the species is not mapped nor recognised as a distinct taxon. It is a rarer species than the other species of Stagnicola. It is found in northern Germany and southern Scandinavia, south to Italy and east to the Ukraine. Fauna Europaea (Bank et al. 2006) list the species from Norway, Sweden, Denmark (mainland), Latvia, Poland, Lithuania, Republic of Ireland (Eire), Great Britain (UK), Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg, France (mainland), Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Italy (mainland), Bulgaria, Romania, Albania, the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Montenegro, and Ukraine.
Kantor et al (2009) note that it occurs in the Dnieper Basin through to the Baltic, but it does not extend further east.
