Sutton & Beaumont, 1989: The Sheffield records quoted in the last list (YNU, 1970) were not quite accurate in that the first specimen was taken in Totley, which is in VC57. However, the second was a valid Yorkshire record (Garland, 1979). There is also one recent confirmed record, VC63, Rossington near Doncaster, 4.6.1980 (RIH).

Argus 47, 2001-2004: VC61. Spurn, 24.5.2004 (BRS). NEW VICE-COUNTY RECORD.
