Lathriopyga longiseta

Range & Status

Found in damp woodland and ornamental gardens. Hopkin noted that it ' is likely to be present throughout the West Country. In September 2003, I found several specimens on the underside of fallen branches on the ground at Trengwainton Gardens (National Trust) [SW43] in West Cornwall' . Dr. Hopkin also collected it on 31 March 2000 from Marsland Valley (SS21) near Hartland, N. Devon, but it may be on the East Cornwall side of the valley also.
