Yorkshire Status: Common and fairly widespread resident.

Sutton & Beaumont, 1989: Evidently widely distributed at the time of Porritt's lists (1883-86, 1907), it was seldom recorded during the middle years of the present [20th] century. Since 1980 it has occurred much more frequently and although still local there are records from all five vice-counties.

Beaumont, 2002: Has continued to increase in frequency and is now recorded widely throughout all five vice-counties.

Recorded in 121 (61%) of 200 10k Squares.
First Recorded in 1883.
Last Recorded in 2023.
