General comments:
Widespread but local resident.

Almost all records relate to the darker males at light traps; the white females rarely come to light, but are occasionally netted during the daytime. Though clearly widespread, the distribution is patchy and there are areas where the species appears to be absent.

Recorded in 34 (83%) of 41 10k Squares.
First Recorded in 1887.
Last Recorded in 2024.
