Yorkshire Status: Fairly common and fairly widespread resident.
Sutton & Beaumont, 1989: This species is still abundant on restricted sites in the far west of Calderdale in VC63 and the Harrogate district in VC64 (also see notes on Z. filipendulae (Linnaeus) above). It has now been recorded from all five vice-counties. There are two fairly distinct forms of this species found in Yorkshire: a large, dark type found on the coast at Filey and Scarborough, and a smaller, paler inland form (Tremewan and Classey, 1970). Whilst these were treated as separate subspecies, current opinion suggests that they intergrade and are collectively as ssp. latomarginata (Tutt).
2012 (CHF): Widespread across the county in flowery grassland. This species seems to have increased since 1989 and numbers are currently stable. We often receive records of Five-spot Burnet but this has never been reliably recorded in the county and further examination shows that these are all Narrow-bordered.
