Yorkshire Status: Fairly common and widespread resident.

This is a widespread species, being seen in small numbers over most of the county. 95% of our records are of one or two moths. It must have been rarer in the past as Porritt was only aware of one record from Scarborough which he considered as needing confirmation. It is seen in two broods; second generation moths being larger, and can appear at any time from March to October. It is usually an easy species to identify, though like many green moths, the colour tends to fade. It is doing very well in the county, and also nationally.

Sutton & Beaumont, 1989: Another of the pugs which are relatively easy to identity. There are now records from all five vice-counties.

Recorded in 132 (66%) of 200 10k Squares.
First Recorded in 1857.
Last Recorded in 2023.
