Species text
Flies of this genus are minute and they are easily overlooked. Records for this species are mainly from coastal sites in England and Scotland. This species appears to be widespread but very localised, with six known post-1960 sites, but it is probably under-recorded. Most records refer to moist sandy areas (with or without vegetation cover), including brackish pools. No action should be taken which will have the effect of destroying the natural state of existing coastal sites (Falk & Crossley, 2005). References
