Species text
Since 1974 the species has been recorded from a number of sites in Dorset. It has also been found at Cranes Moor in the New Forest and probably at two other sites in Hampshire, as well as at Chobham Common, Surrey (Harvey et al. 2002).It is found on dry heathland in the building and mature phases, with some patches of bare stony ground and Ulex europaeus and Pinus sylvestris present, although it is now turning up in places away from southern heathlands including in Surrey (McCarthy, 2002), Essex and Berkshire (Harvey & Hopkin, 2003) and Hampshire (Denton, 2004) and may be spreading after an original colonisation into southern England (Peter Merrett, pers. comm.) or due to climate change.
