Yorkshire Status: Uncommon and very local resident.

The coastal form (Angle-barred Pug) which feeds on sea buckthorn remains common in the Spurn area while the ash-feeding form ('Ash Pug') is commonest in the western dales. If you record it away from these two areas, please be careful as this moth is often misidentified (CHF, 2011).

Both forms are now recorded as Angle-barred Pug Eupithecia fraxinata in the database, and appear together on the Angle-barred Pug distribution. The form fraxinata will be treated as Angle-barred Pug innotata in the forthcoming check-list (per John Langmaid in corres., 2013). (TAB, 2013).

Retained Specimen / Photograph will be Required.
