Habitat and ecology
D. concolor is found in a wide variety of situations, usually at ground level. It can be found in grassland (probably being commonest on calcareous grassland), broad-leaved and mixed woodlands, hedgerows, marsh and waterside vegetation, moss, leaf litter and under ground cover such as stones and is especially common in disturbed situations. It usually occurs in small mixed-sex groups under stones, pieces of wood, rubbish, etc. (J. Daws, pers. comm.). The conditions can range from the relative dryness of chalk downland to the dampness of marshes. Adults of both sexes are commonly recorded throughout the year.
