Yorkshire Status: Scarce and thinly distributed or restricted resident.

Sutton & Beaumont, 1989: Local and not often recorded but probably present in many areas where reedmace grows.

Argus 47, 2001-2004: VC65. Hutton Conyers, 29.9.2000 (CHF). NEW VICE-COUNTY RECORD.

2012 (CHF): The relief map shows clearly that this is a moth of lowland Yorkshire where it is recorded widely wherever reedmace (Typha) grows. It is well known for wandering and can turn up in areas far from suitable habitat. Numbers are healthy and have grown since the mid 1990s though it is usually trapped in small numbers.

Recorded in 109 (55%) of 200 10k Squares.
First Recorded in 1847.
Last Recorded in 2023.
