Yorkshire Status: Uncommon and thinly distributed or restricted resident.

Sutton & Beaumont, 1989: This species is a serious pest of conifer plantations in parts of northern Britain (Skinner, 1984). However, in Yorkshire it is quite local and may have declined slightly overall. It is probably well established in many areas with pine but is generally only recorded in small numbers.

2012 (CHF): Widespread across the county except for the north west and quite common in pine woods, eg 30 at Ellington Banks on 9.4.2004 though it is said not to come strongly to light. It feeds at sallow catkins along with the Orthosia species. Numbers seem to be doing well in the county.

Recorded in 133 (67%) of 200 10k Squares.
First Recorded in 1883.
Last Recorded in 2024.
