Species text
A single old record from Epping Forest is one of only five British records for this species, only one of them recent. M. cyane feeds on floating leaves of Potamogeton in ponds. It is not clear why it has apparently always been so rare, nor what factors might determine its current distribution. It could potentially still be present in the county (P. Kirby, ERD List notes, Dec. 1999) References
