Yorkshire Status: Scarce and local resident.

Sutton & Beaumont, 1989: This species is easily confused with A. repandata (Linnaeus) and P. rhomboidaria (Denis & Schiffermuller). Its presence was not noticed in Yorkshire until some worn male specimens were recognised by S. M. Jackson by the form of their pectinate antennae at a trap run by W. Jagger near Pickering in 1974. It is now known to be quite widespread in north-east Yorkshire with occasional records from other parts of the County.

Argus 47, 2001-2004: VC65. Foxglove Covert, 19.7.2002 (CHF). NEW VICE-COUNTY RECORD.

2012 (CHF): Still local in coniferous woodland but uncommon in the south and east of the county. Often fairly dark and obscurely marked and the male antennae are more feathery than other similar moths.

Recorded in 67 (34%) of 200 10k Squares.
First Recorded in 1964.
Last Recorded in 2023.
