Species text

Distribution
P. parallela is widespread across much of central southern Britain, but much more scattered elsewhere. It is a Palaearctic species widespread in north-western and central Europe.

Habitat and ecology
P. parallela occurs in a variety of habitats including moss, detritus in woods, under stones and, especially, in calcareous and acid grasslands. Crocker & Daws (1996) have also recorded the species in disused quarries, on urban derelict land and in abandoned allotments. Both sexes have been recorded throughout the year, mostly in late spring and mid- to late summer.

Status
Local, but the species may be frequent where it occurs.
