Yorkshire Status: Common and fairly widespread resident.

Sutton & Beaumont, 1989: This species has increased in many areas in the last decade. It is now much more common than the previous species [ie Red-line Quaker], although only slightly more widely recorded. Its increase seems to have matched the decline of A. lychnidis (Denis & Schiffermiiller).

2012 (CHF): Fairly common and widespread across all of the county. It is now equally as common as Red-line Quaker with similar numbers on the database. There are no recent changes in numbers or distribution.

Recorded in 138 (69%) of 200 10k Squares.
First Recorded in 1845.
Last Recorded in 2023.
