Yorkshire Status: Uncommon and fairly widespread resident.
Sutton & Beaumont, 1989: Locally quite common in broad-leaved woodland and parkland. This species flies in mild weather over the winter months so it is rather sparsely recorded due to lack of trapping at this time of year. Found in all five vice-counties.
2012 (CHF): Common and widespread across the county especially in wooded areas. Numbers may have increased a little recently or perhaps more people are trapping in the colder months. The orange and white-spotted forms are equally common.
