A widespread species. If there is no evidence of rapid declines globally, this species will likely qualify as Least Concern.
This species is widespread across the northern hemisphere.
With such a wide range, the population size is suspected to be very large.
In Europe, this species is also only associated with Birch (Sterry 2011).
This is an edible species.
