General comments:
Extremely local resident and vagrant.

Older, undisturbed woods on calcareous ground may support a resident population of this usually rather rare species, but all other records are surely of wanderers from outside our two counties.

Retained Specimen / Photograph will be Required.

Recorded in 21 (51%) of 41 10k Squares.
First Recorded in 1887.
Last Recorded in 2023.
