Yorkshire Status: Fairly common and fairly widespread resident.

Sutton & Beaumont, 1989: Widespread and frequently recorded throughout all five vice-counties, mainly on commons and in woodlands where wild rose flourishes. However it is notably scarce at Skipwith Common (VC61), an apparently suitable site. The larvae feed at night, often hiding during the day in curled leaves (AMRH pers. comm.).

2012 (CHF): Still widespread but numbers have declined in the last few years.

Recorded in 154 (77%) of 200 10k Squares.
First Recorded in 1806.
Last Recorded in 2022.
