In Belgium, H. cinctella was collected for the first time in May 1994 in Honnelles (Bois d'Angre). There was a twelve year gap before the second observation, which occurred in November 2006 in Labussière (Carrière des Carmes) and between 2007 and 2011 four more localities were found. Since 2012 the number of observations has increased significantly with H. cinctella now occurring in at least 45 localities in 37 UTM 5 km squares.
