Re: Chloropid

This is correct. Could we please have the data for our study group? It is in dry grassland and scrub, also fens. Although not common, it is only local and does not have any status.
Best wishes,

John and Barbara

Re: Chloropid

Hello Barbara, John

TL121302.  Pegsdon Hills Nature Reserve, run by Beds, Cambs and Northants Wildlife Trust.  Much of the reserve is dry chalk grassland, lightly grazed by sheep and cattle at various times of the year.  Area where specimen was found is bordered by a narrow scrubby area of ancient thorns.  Presently occupied at a very low level by a herd of (Manx Loaghtan?) sheep.
