Widespread across much of the UK, but especially along western coastal areas of England and Wales. In Nottinghamshire, there are few modern records, but it has been recorded from Attenborough NR in 2015 and most recently in May 2017, where it was found and photographed by Tim Sexton. Our thanks go to Tim, for kindly providing the accompanying photographs of below.
