Yorkshire Status: Very rare

Local Record: 2

Argus 75, 2015: An exciting new moth for the county. The nearest current populations are in Lincolnshire though there are historic records from Northumberland. Usually a moth of broad-leaved woodland. It will be interesting to see whether we get further records.

VC61. Catwick, 13.6.2015 (JM). NEW COUNTY RECORD

Argus 78, 2016: Hot on the heels of the first county record in VC61 last year we now have another. The next few years are likely to bring further records in the south and the east of the county.

Recorded in 4 (2%) of 200 10k Squares.
First Recorded in 2015.
