Species text
This recently recognised species has proved to be widespread in Britain, associated in particular with peaty wetlands, with a wide tolerance range including fens, poor fen, boggy areas, on heathland and extending up to onto moorlands in the north and west (Stubbs& Falk, 2002). It was collected by Dan Hackett at Walthamstow Marshes in 2000, and again during the current survey. References
