Beraea maurus is widespread throughout Europe, from Scandinavia,
Western and Central Europe to the Mediterranean countries, including
Spain, Italy, Sicily and Greece.
The larvae of Beraea maurus are found in springs and trickles,
where they live among moss, debris or dead leaves (Tobias &
Tobias 1981, Vaillant 1982, Pitsch 1993, Robert & Wichard 1994,
Wallace et al. 2003). They preferably inhabit madiculous habitats
(Waringer & Graf 1997, Vaillant 1982).
Larvae are shredders and scrapers (Graf et al. 2002).
Adults are on the wing from May to August (Waringer & Graf 1997).
