Alloclemensia species are known throughout the holarctic region. Of the four described species, one occurs in North America, one in Europe and two in Japan. A fifth species from Japan still awaits description. Nothing is known so far about the distribution of members of this genus in central and eastern Asia, although further species are quite likely to occur there (Nielsen 1981).
