Yorkshire Status: Scarce and thinly distributed or restricted resident.

Sutton & Beaumont, 1989: There have been a few scattered records of this species since 1978, the first since the late 1920s. Its foodplants are found over much of the County so why it should have been absent or unrecorded for so long is unclear.

Beaumont, 2002: There has been a marked increase in records of this moth and it is now recorded widely and sometimes fairly commonly across the County.

Argus 47, 2001-04:

VC65. Hutton Conyers, four 29.4-21.5.2003 (CHF). NEW VICE-COUNTY RECORD.

2012 (CHF): Records have continued to increase and this is now not an uncommon moth with records spread widely across all five vice-counties in two broods - the second being larger. The green markings fade quite quickly to yellow.

Recorded in 121 (61%) of 200 10k Squares.
First Recorded in 1883.
