Sutton & Beaumont, 1989: Very common throughout all five vice-counties. It is the most common of this group of moths and recorded from every type of habitat.

2012 (CHF): Extremely common and recorded in large numbers all across the county in a variety of habitats in the spring. Sometimes less common in woodland than some of its relatives. This moth has a longer flight period than the other Orthosia species and can occasionally appear before the year end. This was most noticeable in 2011 with a remarkable series of records from Hutton Conyers and Sharow from 13th October onwards.

Recorded in 170 (85%) of 200 10k Squares.
First Recorded in 1806.
