Yorkshire Status: Very rare and very local. No recent record.

Sutton & Beaumont, 1989: This species has not been recorded in Yorkshire since Julyy 1942, when a larva was found in Buttercrambe Woods (VC62) (YNU, 1970). It is still occasionally taken in Lincolnshire (VC54) (Duddington & Johnson, 1983), and the Sherwood Forest area of Nottinghamshire, VC56 (Bee, 1988).

Current status (CHF, 2011): Last record in 1942, a possible recoloniser. There are populations close to our boundaries in north Lancashire/Cumbria and a little further away in Lincolnshire.

Recorded in 4 (2%) of 200 10k Squares.
