Yorkshire Status: Fairly common and fairly widespread resident.

Sutton & Beaumont, 1989: Widespread and fairly common over all five vice-counties in damp areas where sallow grows. This species seems to be more common than X. icteritia (Hufnagel) in the east of the County. In the centre there is a marginal balance towards icteritia and in the south and west that species is by far the commonest.

2012 (CHF): Widespread across the county and has increased in numbers in the last ten years. Counts of 20-40 are not uncommon in woodland with plenty of sallows.

Recorded in 155 (78%) of 200 10k Squares.
First Recorded in 1880.
Last Recorded in 2022.
