General comments
Immigrant.

Scotland supports a resident population, but southern British examples are all believed to be immigrants from the Continent; they are smaller and paler than the resident examples. Apart from one at Ashridge in 1960, all our (rather few) records are from 2009 onwards.

Retained Specimen / Photograph will be Required.

Recorded in 8 (20%) of 41 10k Squares.
First Recorded in 1960.
