Yorkshire Status: Very rare and very local resident (?) or migrant/wanderer.

Sutton & Beaumont, 1989: The Sheffield records quoted in the last list (YNU, 1970) were not quite accurate in that the first specimen was taken in Totley, which is in VC57. However, the second was a valid Yorkshire record (Garland, 1979). There is also one recent confirmed record, VC63, Rossington near Doncaster, 4.6.1980 (RIH).

Argus 47, 2001-2004: VC61. Spurn, 24.5.2004 (BRS). NEW VICE-COUNTY RECORD.

2012 (CHF): This is a very uncommon moth in the county. There have been two further records, Spurn on 24.5.2004 and Rudston on 29.6.2009. The main populations of this moth lie well to our south.

Recorded in 7 (4%) of 200 10k Squares.
First Recorded in 1950.
Last Recorded in 2010.
