General comments:
Extremely local resident.

Older, mature woodlands are the habitat of this rather scarce species. It is a conifer-associate; it is is generally distributed, in Britain, to the west of our two counties and so in not really expected to be everywhere, though it may have been overlooked at a few sites.

Recorded in 14 (34%) of 41 10k Squares.
First Recorded in 1961.
Last Recorded in 2022.
