Old county records only (1900), probably identification errors. Considered extinct in Norfolk. Associated with lowland calcareous grassland. Marked decline in UK - Dune stabilisation and increased recreational use of coastal dunes, inappropriate management of chalk grasslands. New to national list of BAP priority species 2007 Old county records only (c. 1800) but possible confusion with P.bipustulatus. Considered extinct in Norfolk. Marked decline in UK - Lack of grazing on wet pasture or dune slacks leading to growth of scrub or coarse grassland.
Formerly found on Mousehold Heath (1883) and Edgefield Heath (1937) and more recently discovered at STANTA (2006). Marked decline in UK - Unsuitable heathland management, and the widespread loss and fragmentation of this habitat. Main site is Salthouse (1st British site) but isolated records from Holkham and Titchwell. Found under seaweed, driftwood and strandline litter, primarily on saltmarshes. Marked decline in UK - Probably both due to the development of coastal habitats and pollution. New to national list of BAP priority species 2007 STANTA is currently the only known site. Was also present at Santon Downham (1987) but alder plantation was then felled. Some old records for the Broads area. Declining – Causes unknown.
Old county records only (1877). Considered extinct in Norfolk. Found along river banks in riverine sediment also associated with eutrophic standing water bodies. Marked decline in UK – Habitat loss due to river engineering. New to national list of BAP priority species 2007
