Yorkshire Status: Rare and local resident.

Sutton & Beaumont, 1989: A very local moth which is dependent on pine. There are few recent records.

2012 (CHF): Recent records from all five vice-counties and this species is not uncommon if traps are set in pine woodland in May and June. Fairly distinctive and often has a distinctive posture with the wings swept back.

Recorded in 59 (30%) of 200 10k Squares.
First Recorded in 1857.
