The descriptive text, below the map, is from the Cornish Red Data Book (2009). The map on this web page depicts the organisms distribution and shows the records made pre-2000 and those made since.
Range & Status
Status: Insufficiently known. Apparently a strictly Atlantic species. Almost all records of this type are from South Devon (excluding SW Devon) but there is also a record from North Devon and one from Cornwall. It is recognised by a distinctly long ventral scale in the anal region. Another julid with such a sub-anal scale has been recorded from South Wales so care is needed with identification and possibly some SW records are of this species.
