Yorkshire Status: Fairly common and thinly distributed or restricted resident.

Sutton & Beaumont, 1989: This species has expanded both its northern and western ranges in the County. P. Q. Winter suggests that on the east coast it is probably a migrant and only temporary resident, but elsewhere in Yorkshire it would appear to be fairly well established.

2012 (CHF): There has been a big expansion in numbers and range since 1989 and it can now be found all over the county though it is still a little uncommon in the west. Numbers vary a lot from year to year and may be augmented by migration. Counts of over 50 have occurred in some years at Spurn. There is a long flight time with two overlapping broods.

Recorded in 118 (59%) of 200 10k Squares.
First Recorded in 1883.
Last Recorded in 2022.
