Yorkshire Status: Very common and widespread resident.

Sutton & Beaumont, 1989: Now common to abundant in many lowland areas, especially of VC64 but less common on higher ground. The foodplant (cleavers), is common in hedgerows alongside arable fields but dies out if grazed so the moth is mainly associated with arable farming and smaller scale cultivation (PQW). Recorded over all five vice-counties.

2012 (CHF): Common and widespread in both upland and lowland areas of the county.

Recorded in 172 (86%) of 200 10k Squares.
First Recorded in 1883.
Last Recorded in 2022.
