Yorkshire Status: Abundant and widespread resident.

Sutton & Beaumont, 1989: Widespread and often common in lower areas and occasional elsewhere in all five vice-counties. This species is similar in appearance to C. citrata (Linnaeus) and they may occasionally be confused. However, citrata generally takes the place of this species on higher ground, although there is considerable overlap in some areas and both species seem to wander out from high population density sites.

2012 (CHF): The comments in Sutton and Beaumont are still valid. There was a marked decline in numbers in 2011.

Recorded in 171 (86%) of 200 10k Squares.
First Recorded in 1846.
Last Recorded in 2023.
