Typically very dark, almost black, and lacking projections on tergites 9, 11 and 13 (as L. muticus). It differs from L. muticus in having normal shaped heads and by having a ‘double’ claw on the last legs.
Distribution and Habitat
It is very widely distributed across Britain and Ireland, but absent from northern Scotland. It occurs in rural sites, such as dry grassland, heathland and moorland.
