In 2009 a male of this species was seen and photographed by Keith Warmington at Baddesley, Nuneaton. It was almost certainly a vagrant but marks on the abdomen suggest it had mated. This is the first proved record of the species in Warwickshire.

There are two other historic records of Keeled Skimmer in the county but they have been discounted because of doubt about their identification.
