Essex Red Data List comment
Recorded from 3 out of 57x10km.sq. records in county

Species text
Parochthiphila coronata is only known from three previous sites in East Anglia, an old site at Walton on Naze, N. Essex (1909, 1912) and two modern sites: Holme Dunes, Norfolk (1978 and 1983) and Blackburn Meadows, Yorkshire (1991, 1993). It has not been found during a recent visit to Walton on Naze and must be regarded as endangered. Adults have been found amongst Ammophila and Elymus on coastal sand dunes and the dune saltmarsh transition zone at the Norfolk locality. The Yorkshire specimens were beside a canal adjacent to former sludge beds. Larvae have been recorded abroad as being predatory upon the scale insect Pseudococcus aberrans in the leaf sheaths of Agropyron repens (national status review in preparation). References
