Yorkshire Status: Common and fairly widespread resident.

Sutton & Beaumont, 1989: Well distributed over all five vice-counties but varies greatly in density. For instance, there are only a few Wharfedale (VC64) records but at Baldersby St James (VC65) it is common. The larvae feed on hawthorn in hedgerows.

Recorded in 156 (78%) of 200 10k Squares.
