Species text
It has a disjunct distribution in Southern and Central England and Scotland. Its status has been revised from Rare in Shirt (1987). The larvae are parasitoids of the caterpillars of Geometridae and Lasiocampidae (Lepidoptera) that feed on a variety of trees and shrubs. Management should maintain open rides and clearings in woods, ensuring a wide range of trees, shrubs and herbs. References
