This species is becoming cosmopolitan; known from most of the Palaearctic, including North Africa, most of North America, South America and the Oriental region. But records from the Afrotropical region are apparently erroneous (Speight 2010).

In the Nearctic Region, Syritta pipiens is known from British Columbia to Newfoundland, south to California and Florida, and Mexico (Thompson 2010).
