Austria (Fauna Europaea, 2009).
Anterior spiraculum bud-shaped, with c. 6 papillae; rear spiraculum with c. 12 papillae in an ellipse (de Meijere, 1943a). The description of the larva by Beri (1971a), taken from Clematis alpina, is a mystification.
Black, shining, segment borders only weakly constricted.
