Species text
The species is widely distributed as far north as Yorkshire, but most records are from southern heathlands of Dorset, Hampshire, Sussex and Surrey. It is a brood parasite of species of Mimesa (Sphecidae), occuring in the sandy habitats of the hosts. The species profile map (Archer & Roberts, 2002) suggests a status revision (to Nationally Scarce) would be warranted. Its occurrence at a main nesting area in the West Thurrock PFA North Lagoon is the first record for Essex. References
