Note
.   This species may now be extinct in Britain (except the Channel Islands). Six 
specimens have been captured in the Bournemouth area, but none since 1906, and 
the exact localities seem to have been built over. It is possible that it occurs 
elsewhere, e.g. Kynance Cove, Cornwall, but there is no specimen to corroborate 
this. (Bristowe, `Proc. Zool. Soc. Lond.,' 1935, p. 225.)

A
.
 piceus 
Sulz., but careful scrutiny of the 
evidence has shown that considerable doubt exists as to whether the specimen in question was 
really collected in Britain at all. (Bristowe, `Ann. Mag. N.H.', March, 1933, p. 289.)
