Yorkshire Status: Uncommon and fairly widespread resident.

Sutton & Beaumont, 1989: Recorded widely but only locally common. Never as common as other moths of this group.

2012 (CHF): This is very much a woodland moth so less common in gardens than some of the other Orthosia species. Widespread across lowland areas of the county. Large numbers can occur in broadleaved woodland in spring eg 492 at Ellington Banks on 23.3.2011. Wing markings tend to vary and the twin spots are often faint or absent.

Recorded in 140 (70%) of 200 10k Squares.
First Recorded in 1883.
Last Recorded in 2023.
