Species Account

Sutton & Beaumont, 1989: This species was recorded in the County in 1979 by Dr R.S. Key. However, due to confusion over the vice-county boundary it has not, until now, been recognized as a Yorkshire species. Several other specimens have since been taken in Lincolnshire, so more searching in the south of our own County might well result in other Yorkshire specimens.

Current status (CHF, 2011): A single record from Thorne Moors in 1979, where it is possible we may still have a small isolated population.
