Yorkshire Status: Very rare and very local resident.

Sutton & Beaumont, 1989: A very local species in England on moorland and limestone hills (Skinner, 1984). There are only three recent records in Yorkshire, two from similar areas in VC64 and one from a more unexpected site.

2012 (CHF): Rediscovered at Dib Scar in 2008 after a gap of 26 years when a single moth was found in the daytime.

Argus 78, 2016: The only English records of this moth in recent years have been from the Grass Wood/Dib Scar area so it is one of our most important species. The larvae feed on Eyebright. It is most encouraging to report a record from another site six miles away as the moth flies. Almost all of the 13 county records have been of day-flying moths. It is small and unobtrusive and easy to mistake for the slightly larger Twin-spot Carpet. It might be interesting to search surrounding sites.
