Species text
Most records of this wasp are restricted to southern England south of a line between the Bristol Channel and the Wash. In Essex it is scarce. It occurs in a variety of habitats, but perhaps especially woodlands. It is typically encountered around dead wood, timber and umbellifer flowers (Edwards 1998). References
