Sutton & Beaumont, 1989: This species is moderately common in the South of England (Skinner, 1984) but had only doubtfully been recorded in Porritt's list (1904). In 1978, therefore when several were found at light on Skipwith Common, it was counted as a new County record. There has since been an unconfirmed record (due to no specimen) from another site which would seem quite suitable for this insect.
