Species text
This is a local groundbug, confined to southern and eastern England. In Essex there are several recent records of this species from dry grassland and derelict urban sites in the south-west, and a rather isolated record from Foulness. It may well be rather widespread along sea banks, but is a rather difficult species to record (occurring in small numbers, ground-dwelling, and with no known plant associations). It is recorded from a range of habitats, including chalk grassland, cliffs, ruderal communities, and wet and dry neutral grasslands. References
