Importance and distribution in Luxembourg

Distribution map of Dicranopalpus ramosus (Simon, 1909) in Luxembourg. Recorder-LUX & iNaturalist, 2019.08.21.

Five occurrences of the species in Luxembourg are documented in the Recorder database, the first dating from 2007. In the Gutland meanwhile widespread, in the Ösling probably still largely missing (Muster & Meyer 2014: 38-39).

Originally the species was found in Morocco. Later it spread into Europe, with first reports in Portugal (1948), where it spread to Spain (1965) and France (1969). The Netherlands were reached in 1992. Since 2004 it is known to occur in Germany. As early as 1957, it was reported in Bournemouth, southern England, from where it spread all over the island, reaching Scotland in 2000. In 2010, one occurrence in Denmark was documented. 1
