Species Account

Sutton and Beaumont, 1987: Not recorded since Porritt (1883-86, 1904). The record given by Skinner (1984), of a specimen of this rare migrant being taken at Rudston (VC61) on 18.9.1980 is an error. (Probably resulting from a confusing juxtaposition of text in the Entomologist's Record where a report occurred from a different county (93, 3 - 4 p. 53, 1981)).
