Yorkshire Status: Fairly common and fairly widespread resident.
Sutton & Beaumont, 1989: Although not previously included in a Yorkshire list; W. Reid was recording this species from Whirlow, Sheffield (VC63) regular T. obeliscata (Hubner), so we cannot be sure of these early records. Recently there have been several more records which are probably reliable but none so far have been critically examined so there is still an element of doubt. The species occurs in Durham and an old (1900-50) record is shown for Upper Teesdale (Dunn & Parrack, 1986).
Current status (CHF, 2011): From a few scattered localities in the 1980s and 90s, this moth is now widespread across the county and is now commoner than the rather similar Grey Pine Carpet.
