Species text
The species is usually found in broad-leaved or mixed woodland on the lower branches of broad-leaved trees such as oak at the edge of clearings or rides. It is also found in old hedgerows and green lanes. Previously difficult to identify, it has been widely recorded in recent years and is likely to be demoted in status in a forthcoming review. The majority of records are from mature oak trees in open woodland habitat, at the edge of clearings or in hedgerows. This type of habitat is threatened by lack of management resulting in the closure of open woodland, the loss of old trees and the use of pesticides on crops where old oak trees occur in land converted to arable or old hedgerows are adjacent to arable fields (Harvey et al. 2002).
