Yorkshire Status: Scarce and local resident.

Sutton & Beaumont, 1989: There are a few additional records since 1970 but it would appear that this woodland species is still generally elusive.

2012 (CHF): As in 1989, this moth is rarely reported but there are records from many different sites in the centre of the county where it seems to occur at a low density. There have been no records from VC63 since 1999.

Recorded in 33 (17%) of 200 10k Squares.
