1079 Violet click beetle Limoniscus violaceus

Violet click beetle Limoniscus violaceus was recorded at Bredon Hill in 1989, although there is a 1939 record from ‘Tewkesbury’, which may refer to Bredon Hill. It has been found in each of several years since. It is a very important site for fauna associated with decaying timber on ancient trees, including many Red Data Book and Nationally Scarce invertebrate species.
