In brambles between a bridleway and a small wood on wooded farmland.

The right-hand column of images 2, 4, 6, & 8 show the commoner X.pedissequum comparing the four main traditional features which separate the two. This includes the black facial stripe of the female which weakens more as it reaches the frons on stackelbergi, and tends to be thicker on pedissequum
