Habitat

Among stones and leaf litter ( Silvestri 1903). The finds from Northern Ireland are from woodland ( Anderson 1996); those from Germany, Great Britain and France all seem to be synanthropic ( Lindner et al. 2010; Gregory et al. 2015; Geoffroy in litt.). On Madeira, A. pulchella is common in the indigenous laurel forest (laurisilva) where it was mostly found under leaf litter, but also under stones, under moss on stones, under bark, in a bracket fungus, and in dead wood; at night it was observed crawling on tree trunks (HE pers. obs.).
