Cryptops hortensis is a successful invasive species probably of Palearctic origin. However, recent molecular studies in Europe identified multiple similar species previously misidentified as Cryptops hortensis. In the Nearctic Region, C. hortensis is presumably an exotic species with well-established populations in the northeastern USA.
