A widespread species. If there is no evidence of rapid declines globally, this species will likely qualify as Least Concern.
This species is widespread in the northern hemisphere and it is likely to have been introduced (or mis-identified as this species) elsewhere.
With such a large range, the population size is suspected to be very large.
In Europe, this species occurs in gardens, roadsides or broadleaf woods.
This is an edible species (Evans and Kibby 2004).
