Yorkshire Status: Scarce and thinly distributed or restricted resident.

Sutton & Beaumont, 1989: Recorded at a fairly low density throughout all five vice-counties. Particularly sparse in VC65 and higher areas generally.

Current status (CHF, 2011): A national decline has been evident for many years, and this has been particularly noticeable in Yorkshire, though we still have some rather local populations. This species is often misidentified. It is of course not common in gardens!

Recorded in 78 (39%) of 200 10k Squares.
First Recorded in 1880.
Last Recorded in 2022.
