General comments
Widespread resident.

The Small Fan-footed Wave has apparently always been common in Hertfordshire and today is expected to be present on all site lists for the county. Populations seem to rise and fall across the years, however, and in some years it can be hard to find.

Recorded in 37 (90%) of 41 10k Squares.
First Recorded in 1887.
Last Recorded in 2024.
