Sutton & Beaumont, 1989: Much less common than F. furcula (Clerck) with only a few recent records from vice-counties 61 to 64. Many of the records below are of light trap catches. Searching for larvae or pupae, might produce many more records.
2012 (CHF): There has been an increase in records in recent years, mostly in the north of the county, but it is much less common than Sallow Kitten. There is often confusion separating these two species and this is generally easier in the hand than from photographs. Poplar Kitten is more long-winged.
Recorded in 68 (34%) of 200 10k Squares. First Recorded in 1883. Last Recorded in 2022. Additional Stats
