Yorkshire Status: Very rare and very local resident.

Sutton & Beaumont, 1989: This species was caught on Crowle Moor in Lincolnshire in 1978 by Dr R. S. Key but, due to confusion with the County and the vice-county boundaries, it was not added to the Yorkshire list. This area of land is actually just in VC63, so this record is valid for both modern-day Lincolnshire and our demarcation of Yorkshire by the vice-county system.

Beaumont, 2002:

VC61. Spurn, 8.8.1996 (BRS). NEW VICE-COUNTY RECORD.

Current status (CHF, 2011): Previous records from Spurn and from Crowle Moor, the last in 1996. Recent records from the Lincolnshire side of Crowle Moor suggest it may still occur in the county.

Recorded in 2 (1%) of 200 10k Squares.
First Recorded in 1978.
Last Recorded in 1996.
