This species is known only from the Brecklands of East Anglia, where it was first recorded in 1997. Most records are from sandy field margins where it is associated with a range of ruderal plants.
Superficially rather similar in to Peritrechus species, S. nebulosus is best identified by the margin of the pronotum, which is pale, keeled and bears 5-7 long hairs arising from dark spots (see inset, right).
Adult: All year
Length 4.5-5.5 mm
