Yorkshire Status: Common and fairly widespread resident.

Sutton & Beaumont, 1989: Recorded fairly sparsely from vice-counties 61 to 64 but seems to be present at a low density in most wooded areas. However most records are from light traps so its frequency as a larva cannot be commented on. Map 110 in MBGBI 9 shows a VC65 record but this has not yet been traced, however since Dunn and Parrack (1986) state that it has not been taken in any western traps in Durham, it could be genuinely rare or absent from much of the vice-county.

2012 (CHF): The 1989 comments probably reflect the lack of recording at the time in VC65. This species is widespread and common over all of the county in a variety of habitats.

Recorded in 158 (79%) of 200 10k Squares.
First Recorded in 1837.
Last Recorded in 2022.
