General comments:
Widespread resident.

The adult is frequently confused with that of Campion and the two species fly together in the same localities. Indeed, there is little difference in the wider distribution pattern of the two species both being at least to some degree under-recorded, but probably absent from the arable area of the north-east.

Recorded in 33 (80%) of 41 10k Squares.
First Recorded in 1887.
Last Recorded in 2023.
