Yorkshire Status: Very rare and very local migrant/wanderer.

Argus 58, 2009: Three records of what was probably the same moth. Resident in the Channel Islands and a former resident of the Fens and East Anglia in the 19th Century, but now a scarce migrant to the mainland. This is the furthest north this species has been recorded. VC61. Easington, 25, 26 and 28.6.2009 (MJS). NEW COUNTY RECORD.

Argus 90, 2020: The only previous county records of this scarce and attractive migrant were at Easington in 2009 where the three records may have been the same moth re-trapped. Two more were found at the same site this year, one nearby at Welwick, and more surprisingly one found its way to VC64.

VC61. Easington (Spurn), 7 & 8.8.2020 (MFS); Welwick, 15.8.2020 (CW). VC64. Askham Bryan, 15.6.2020 (DLa). NEW VICE-COUNTY RECORD.
