. 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 second species,
Cambr., was formerly included in the British list.
Examination of the specimen has shown this to be
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.)
