Yorkshire Status: Very rare and very local. No recent record.

Sutton & Beaumont, 1989: This species is now probably extinct in Britain, the last record being from Hertfordshire in 1935 (Skinner, 1984). The last Yorkshire specimens were recorded in 1915 and 1919 (probably from VC63) (YNU, 1970) but in Porritt's day it was quite widespread in the County, and indeed South Yorkshire was the best known English locality although it died out earlier here than in many other parts of the country. T. Wilkinson recorded it as common at Scarborough (VC62) (Walsh, 1956) and it was reported as abundant at Wharncliffe Wood (VC63) in 1887 (Porritt, 1904), with 116 taken there in 1888 (Garland, 1979). Other localities were Sutton upon Derwent (VC61), York (VC61/62/64), Wakefield, Rotherham and Barnsley (VC63) (Porritt, 1883-86, 1904).

2012 (CHF): There have been no further records. This species is extinct in Britain, the last record being in Hertfordshire in 1935. It appeared to depend upon ancient deciduous woodland with open grassy areas.
