Records are confused. It is documented as "certainly occurred in... W. Norfolk, 1925, specimen in Taunton museum." (MBGBI 7.2. 1992) However, recent enquires have revealed that none of the 34 specimens at Taunton museum are from Norfolk, although 6 specimens in the Harris Doidge's collection given by Butler in 1933 have no data.
No reference can be found in any of the entomological journals of the time. [JW]
