Essex Red Data List comment
5 recent records.
This pseudoscorpion is very closely related to C. tetrachelatus, but is a British endemic first recorded from Colne Point. It has been found mainly on the east coast between Norfolk and Kent (Legg & Jones 1988). It appears to be largely maritime, occurring amongst drift-line debris and large pebbles on the upper-shore/splash zone. References
