Species text
Apart from records from Kirkcudbrightshire and the Isle of Man, the species is confined to south of a line from the Wash to Cardigan Bay. Agraecina striata occurs at ground level in wet places, in wet heathland and bog, in marshes, fens and wet broad-leaved woodland, with no clear preference for any particular type of wet habitat. It is found in a range of coastal habitats including wet grassland and dyke edges but also on dune and shingle. In Essex the species is often found in brackish grassland behind the sea wall (Harvey et al. 2002). References
