Yorkshire Status: Scarce and thinly distributed or restricted resident.
Sutton & Beaumont, 1989: A very local moth which has turned up several times since 1970. Whether it has increased or is just better recorded is uncertain but there are no recent records for VC63. The records given from Headingley (VC64) are of interest, the site (Meanwood Ridge) being only about two miles from Leeds city centre.
