A rare species in Nottinghamshire. We currently know of just three locations where this beetle is found, but many of the old pit tops should be capable of holding this species. It is found on species of St John's Wort (Hypericum) with the only known sites in Nottinghamshire being the former colliery sites at Gedling Pit Top, Bevercotes Pit Wood and Warsop Main Pit Top. There are no Sherwood Forest NNR records.
