Species text
The species is confined to southern England where it remains widespread, but generally scarce and very local (Falk, 1991). It is associated with reasonably open, sandy situations including heathalnd, sandpits, dry grassland, open woodland and coastal habitats. In Essex there are few records from the Colchester area and Thurrock, with several of the few sites threatened with development. References
