Sutton & Beaumont, 1989: The overall distribution of this species has changed very little in the past twenty years, however there has been no further VC65 record. It has been found regularly in a Leeds (VC64) suburb where bladder campion was grown from seed as a garden flower (GB pers. comm.).

2012 (CHF): Very local in areas with bladder campion and not recorded every year. There have been no records in the eastern half of the county for over 20 years.

Recorded in 52 (26%) of 200 10k Squares.
First Recorded in 1883.
Last Recorded in 2022.
