For the county, we have a total of 689 records from 201 sites. First recorded in 1883.
Sutton & Beaumont, 1989: Apparently very local. There are odd records from each vice-county except VC65, although it is reported to be abundant in Northumberland and Durham (Dunn & Parrack, 1986) so it may well also be present here.
Argus 47, 2001-04:
VC65. Hutton Conyers, 8.7.1999 (CHF). NEW VICE-COUNTY RECORD.
2012 (CHF): We now have records from all five vice-counties This species is now in national decline and in Yorkshire this has been evident in the last ten years. We only received 15 records in 2011 though these were from all five VCs.
