Species text
Hyperaspis pseudopustulata is widespread but local throughout Great Britain, becoming extremely local and infrequently recorded in northern England and Scotland. It has been recorded from deciduous woodland, heathland, grassland, coastal marshes and saltings. The ladybird is predatory and usually found amongst herbage or in moss on or below trees. Threats include loss of habitat through change in land use and coastal developments (Hyman & Parsons, 1992). References
