Yorkshire Status: Fairly common and fairly widespread resident.
Sutton & Beaumont, 1989: Generally common in higher areas near woodland but occasionally recorded from widely scattered lowland sites all over the five vice-counties.
2012 (CHF): Still fairly widespread with most records coming from upland areas, but there has been a decline in numbers in the last few years. Take care not to confuse this univoltine species with the similar but bivoltine Common Marbled Carpet. It flies from mid July to the end of September and records outside these dates may be incorrect.
