    Always scarce in the county, it has become increasingly rare in recent years and was last seen in the county in 2014 (Porlock).  Relatively recent records from the Quantocks, Merriott and Periton.  Associated with dry, acidic sites, which are often under-recorded in Somerset, is possible that populations still exist in these areas.
