Believed extinct in Britain, having not been recorded since 1933.

C. Barrett [Trans. N&NNS, 1874] Recorded at Foulsham by the Rev. T. H. Marsh. Stephens writes: "Mr Haworth possesses a single specimen of this insect, which i believe was taken in Norfolk." This species is rare, but as its headquarters are in Cambridgeshire, it may reasonably be expected to occur in West Norfolk.
