Species text
Andrena minutuloides was widely recorded in southern England, but with post-1970 records for only about 20 sites, mostly in Hampshire, Sussex and Kent (Falk 1991b). It is most often found on calcareous grassland and chalk heath, and was first recorded in Essex in 1993 from the chalk at Thurrock. Except at Grays Chalk Pit, it is now lost from its former Essex sites at Mill Wood Pit and Dolphin Pit, and is only otherwise known to occur at a small area of land by Tank Hill Lane site and in small numbers at the north lagoon at West Thurrock PFA Lagoons, both designated for development in the new Deposit UDP.
