Yorkshire Status: Common and fairly widespread resident.
Sutton & Beaumont, 1989: Quite widespread, but it would now appear that H. alsines (Brahm) rather than the present species is the more frequent in the County. In VC61 a clear association with chalk and sand has been noted (PQW) but elsewhere in the County there does not appear to be any obvious preference, except that nearly all are low lying sites.
2012 (CHF): Common and widespread over the county and rarely encountered in such big numbers as Uncertain. For the difference between these two species, see Uncertain.
