Yorkshire Status: Very rare and very local resident.
Sutton & Beaumont, 1989: This is a rare moth in Yorkshire although the distribution given in Skinner (1984) suggests it should be more frequent. The only record since the last list (YNU, 1970) is of one from Eccleshall Woods, Sheffield in the 1970s (Garland, 1979).
Current status (CHF, 2011): Last recorded in 1996. This species is still likely to occur within our boundaries. We have two records from the 1990s in the west of VC64. There are recent records just over the border in north Lancashire. Mature oak woodland should be targeted.
