The center of occurrence of Paracorymbia fulva is southern and western Europe, marginally extending to England, Ireland, Asia Minor and the European part of Russia. The northern border of the distribution of the species passes through the territory of Slovakia, where this xerothermic faunistic element, rare in Central Europe, has been collected more frequently in recent years [▽]. Poplars (Populus spp.), oaks (Quercus spp.) and wilows (Salix spp.) are often mentioned as host trees. Life cycle probably 2 years. Adults, active from June to August, are diurnal and anthopilous [❖][✧].
