It occurs in most of China, Korea , Japan, and north into Mongolia and southern Siberia, over a large area of eastern Asia. A distinct population was traditionally known to be conspecific in the southwestern and central parts of the Iberian Peninsula, in Spain and Portugal, but recent genetic research has shown that they are distinct at the species level.
