Essex Red Data List comment
Until recently its occurrence in Essex was not confirmed, but it has now been found at a number of sites in south Essex.

Species text
Old Essex records (Harwood 1903, Massee 1955) of E. maura are believed to be errors for the more common E. testudinaria, which for many years was not recognised as a separate species and with which confusion remains common. E. maura is largely confined to the chalk downs of Kent, Surrey, and Hampshire (P. Kirby in Essex Red Data list at www.essexfieldclub.org.uk). Its occurrence in Essex on the chalk in Thurrock has only been definitely established by the records from Anchor Field, West Thurrock PFA North Lagoon, both confirmed by Dr Peter Kirby, Corys Wharf at Purfleet, now destroyed for development, Blackshots Nature Area in Grays and other sites in the south Essex region close to the Thames.
