Yorkshire Status: Scarce and thinly distributed or restricted resident.
Sutton & Beaumont, 1989: Often recorded both as an adult at light and as larvae. According to data on map 7 in MBGBI 10, the northern limit of this species in Britain is around the south of VC62 and VC65. This agrees with our lack of records from the north of these vice-counties. However, Dunn and Parrack (1986) do record it as very occasional in Durham.
2012 (CHF): Widespread in small numbers in central and eastern Yorkshire but uncommon in the rest of the county. There are still very few records further to the north.
