Species text
The unpublished JNCC Calypterate Review states that it has been recorded in southern and central England, with an increase in recent years and well over a dozen post-1960 localities. This may only reflect an increase in recording, and this is still a highly restricted species. It occurs in broadleaved woodland, including birch scrub in areas of wet heath and fen, heaths and calcareous grassland. The larvae are parasitoids of several species of shieldbug including species associated with Birch, Juniper and Gorse such as Elasmostethus interstinctus, Elasmucha grisea and Piezodorus lituratus. Management should maintain open rides and clearings in woodlands, ensuring a wide range of trees, shrubs and herbs, maintain the natural hydrology of wet sites and maintain a mosaic of vegetation types on heaths and grassland, to ensure a rich and varied flora.
