Species text
Alydus calcaratus is widely distributed nationally, but something of a connoisseur of generally nice places (P. Kirby, pers. comm.). It is found mostly on coasts and heathland, and despite being a good flier, it is seemingly very rarely found in secondary sites. There are few Essex records, although it has been recorded from several brownfield sites near the Thames. References
