Yorkshire Status: Very rare and very local migrant/wanderer.
Sutton & Beaumont, 1989: This species is probably only resident in the Norfolk Broads in Britain but is occasionally taken as a vagrant elsewhere. Such a specimen was taken at Kettlethorpe, near Wakefield (VC63) on 1.8.1982 by R. Council. A fresh specimen was also taken in Lincolnshire (VC54) in the same year (Duddington & Johnson, 1983). Possibly these were both from the same dispersal movement.
