Yorkshire Status: Common and thinly distributed or restricted resident.

Sutton & Beaumont, 1989: Sparsely recorded across the County but does not often appear to be common. Wanderers are sometimes found well away from common reed, on which the larva feeds.

2012 (CHF): Doing well in the county with increased records recently though numbers tend to fluctuate. Fairly common late in the year wherever common reed grows and often wandering to other areas such as gardens. Uncommon in the north and west on the higher ground.

Recorded in 112 (56%) of 200 10k Squares.
First Recorded in 1879.
Last Recorded in 2022.
