Sutton & Beaumont, 1989: An inhabitant of chalk and limestone areas. Well established in the Wolds, and the magnesian limestone belt in the centre of the County but very local or vagrant elsewhere.
2012 (CHF): Whilst Varied Coronet is becoming more common and expanding its range in the county, the rather similar Marbled Coronet remains very local and reported in small numbers from widely scattered sites on calcareous soils. There was only one record in 2011 and there were none at all reported in 2006. It has become particularly uncommon in VC63 - the only records since 2000 have been two from Pontefract.
