Sutton & Beaumont, 1989: This species is inconspicuous both as larva and imago and will only usually come in numbers to a light close to the foodplant, so it is probably much more frequent than it appears.
2012 (CHF): Scattered records from all across the county. This species is extremely small compared with other pugs and can be mistaken for Maple Pug. Peak flight time is around 1st August and records more than four weeks away from this time should be examined critically. It tends not to wander far from its foodplant (sallows).
