There are 3 subspecied in Europe, the two other are only known from Southern Europe. 

This was photographed during a guided night tour in the Lainzer Tiergarten in 2016.

This is only the 2nd record ever found in Vienna. The first was found in a private coleoptera collection donated to the Natural History Museum Vienna and is undated - possibly from the first half of the 20th century.
