Essex Red Data List comment
parasite on Astata boops

Species text
Hedychridium roseum occurs from Cornwall to Kent, northwards to East Norfolk, but the vast majority of records are concentrated in the southern heathlands of Dorset, Hampshire and Surrey. Edwards (1998) states that work for the atlas suggests its national status should be reviewed (to Nationally Scarce). The wasp is a cleptoparasite of the sphecid wasp Astata boops and both species are rare in Essex with few records. References
