Sutton & Beaumont, 1989: Frequently reported from all five vice-counties but often rather local in lower areas.

2012 (CHF): A big increase in numbers in the last few years has been fuelled by a second generation. This species became bivoltine in the county in 2004 and the second brood has grown to be now as big as the first. Records extend well into October.

Recorded in 181 (91%) of 200 10k Squares.
