Yorkshire Status: Fairly common and fairly widespread resident.
Sutton & Beaumont, 1989: Skinner (1984) suggests this species should be 'widespread and common' inhabiting deciduous woodland. Our records suggest it is widespread but found at a low density, only being reasonably common in higher wooded sites.
2012 (CHF): Commonest in upland broadleaved woodland but present at a lower density in other habitats, so the comments in 1989 still apply. An increase in records in the last three years.
