Sutton & Beaumont, 1989: Porritt (1907) stated that this species was 'abundant everywhere', this does not seem to be the situation now as recent records are few. Available records are thinly spread in vice-counties 61 to 63 only, Porritt's comment suggests that rosana was more widely recorded at the beginning of the century.
