This species occurs from central Europe south to North Africa and east through southern Siberia to Mongolia, central Asian mountains, China and from Turkey and Lebanon to Nepal. This species usually occurs as rather sparse populations associated with other aquatic groups. However, there is not much information on the size of populations in many parts of the world. This species is found in wet meadows, on lake-shores, along streams and brooklets mostly in lower and upper montane zones in altitudes from 1,000-3,300 m asl (Kukkonen 1998).
