Sutton & Beaumont, 1989: The first Yorkshire record for many years was of a larva found on aspen in the Scarborough area (VC62) on 4.8.1978 by P. Q. Winter. The moth emerged in 1979. A second larva was beaten at a locality about four miles from the first on 6.7.1980 (PQW). This is in the area mentioned by Porritt (1983-86) and it had also been confirmed as present here earlier in the century. It would appear possible that there is a very small resident population.
2012 (CHF): Confined to VC62 where we have had scattered records from several different sites. Our small population appears stable.
