Yorkshire Status: Scarce and thinly distributed or restricted resident.

Sutton & Beaumont, 1989: More widely recorded in the last few years but still rather local. In vice-counties 61 and 62 it seems to favour relatively undisturbed sites on sand or chalk (PQW pers. comm.).

Beaumont, 2002: This moth has been reported less frequently in recent years.

2012 (CHF): Widely scattered records from chalky lowland areas. A small second generation in Augustust has become more regular in the last ten years. Only ever reported in small numbers, in fact 94% of our records are of single moths. Numbers are small but stable and may be slightly increasing.

Recorded in 78 (39%) of 200 10k Squares.
First Recorded in 1883.
Last Recorded in 2022.
