Yorkshire Status: Abundant and widespread resident.

Sutton & Beaumont, 1989: Widely recorded and often common throughout all five vice-counties, although becoming scarcer northwards. Summer specimens produce an autumn brood which is usually swelled by immigration and, in such circumstances, the species is often very numerous.

2012 (CHF): Common and widespread across the whole county. This is one of the very few species which is recorded in every month of the year. There was a significant drop in numbers in 2010 and 2011.

Recorded in 172 (86%) of 200 10k Squares.
First Recorded in 1846.
Last Recorded in 2022.
