History
Lennon (1863) stated that it was not common, but that it had occurred at Dalskairth (VC73). Gordon (1919) had two records, one at the side of the Malzie Burn, Corsemalzie, at dusk on 2nd June 1910, with another 29th April 1912.
 
Sir Arthur Duncan (1909-84) during his lifetime had found it at Castlehill, Dumfries (VC72). Archibald Russell (1944) listed it as occurring near Gatehouse of Fleet (VC73) during the years 1942-43.
 
During 1974-93 there were nearly 100 records from all seven of the Rothamsted stations, proving it widespread.
 
From 1993 to 2010 the regular trapped sites at Kirkton, Durisdeer, Cally Woods, Carsfad at Dalry and Old Torr produced most of the remaining eighty records, with odd singles here and there.
