Yorkshire Status: Probable migrant.

Argus 47, 2001-2004:

VC61. Spurn, 7.6.2002 (CJ). NEW COUNTY RECORD.

Current status (CHF, 2011): NEW COUNTY RECORD - Spurn 2002. This species feeds on flixweed Descurainia sophia in the Breckland area of Norfolk and Suffolk where the population is quite healthy. It tends not to come to light. The Spurn record was probably an immigrant or an internal migrant, however the foodplant does occur in areas of disturbed ground along the Humber, so it is not impossible that we might get more records of this RDB3 species.

Recorded in 1 (1%) of 200 10k Squares.
First Recorded in 2002.
Last Recorded in 2002.
