Sutton & Beaumont, 1989: This species may have increased slightly over the past few years. Now reported as frequent or common from scattered sites in lowland areas over all five vice-counties. In at least one area it was commented that it had not been recorded prior to 1984 and other sources have suggested it has slowly moved north.
