Yorkshire Status: Abundant and widespread resident.

Sutton & Beaumont, 1989: This species seems to have declined slightly in some areas but is still fairly frequently recorded from vice-counties 61 to 64. There is only one VC65 record (Baldersby St James, RIS trap 315, TAP). This is a resident species but is probably reinforced by immigration in some years.

2012 (CHF): Common and widespread across the county with an increase in numbers in the last ten years. The second brood can be very numerous, eg 410 at Escrick on 25.8.2006.

Recorded in 161 (81%) of 200 10k Squares.
First Recorded in 1883.
Last Recorded in 2022.
