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

Pheromone lures: MYO, and MYO+API. Flies later, mid June to August. Prefers old Apple and Pear in orchards, and more naturally on Crab Apple in single trees on verges and in larger gardens. Another quick flier, tends not to land on the lure during brief visits.

Sutton & Beaumont, 1989: Not recorded since Porritt (1983-86) when it was reported from the Sheffield area (VC63). The same comment on national distribution is given as for S. spheciformis (Denis & Schiffermüller) in MBGBI 2 and shown on map 203. Again this probably refers to the old record.

Current status (CHF, 2011): Last recorded 1883. Again no recent records north of the Midlands, but perhaps a more likely contender for recolonisation, especially if old orchards are targeted with pheromone lures.
