Species text
Rhopalus parumpunctatus is largely confined to the south and east of England and Wales. It is a species of dry sandy habitats, particularly heaths, dunes, and the East Anglian Breckland. Within its range and habitats, it can be quite common. In Surrey the distribution closely follows heaths of west Surrey, but it has also been found on the chalk of the North Downs on three occasions, where it was swept from St John?s-wort (Hawkins, 2003).
