Sutton & Beaumont, 1989: Scarce and local. The actual sites from which this moth has been reported have changed since 1970 but its general distribution in Yorkshire remains almost the same. Although we have no VC65 records it has been recorded in Upper Teesdale in VC66 (Dunn & Parrack, 1986).
2012 (CHF): Local though apparently well-distributed within the county. There is still no VC65 record. This species is commonly misidentified and many claimed records turn out to be other species of Wave. A good quality photograph or a specimen is usually needed for verification. Often disturbed in the daytime but also sometimes comes to light.
