PLANT HOST AND DISTRIBUTION. The plant species found to host R. glechomatis are Glechoma hederacea L. and G. hirsuta Waldst. & Kit. (Braun 1998).

In Poland, R. glechomatis has been found on G. hederacea growing in Pieniny (49°26'N, 20°19'E; Kucmierz 1976), the valley of the Bug river (50°48'N, 23°53'E; Danilkiewicz 1987), the Leczynsko-Wlodawskie Lake District (51°33'N, 23°33'E; Mulenko 1988), meadows located between Naklo and Ujscie (53°04'N, 16°44'E; Michalski 1982), and the Slowinski National Park (54o45'N, 17o26'E; Adamska, pers. observ.).

According to Braun (1998), R. glechomatis was found to occur in many countries of Europe and Asia.
