Yorkshire Status: Uncommon and fairly widespread resident.

Sutton & Beaumont, 1989: Generally common on heaths and moors throughout all five vice-counties and also quite frequently taken in valleys and far away from moorland.

2012 (CHF): Numbers of this moth have declined significantly in the last five years though it is still reported widely across the county. Most records are from the uplands though for a heather-feeding moth is surprising how many records are from lowland areas. Two overlapping generations; the second being the largest.

Recorded in 127 (64%) of 200 10k Squares.
First Recorded in 1880.
Last Recorded in 2022.
