Yorkshire Status: Scarce and local resident.

Sutton & Beaumont, 1989: There have been a few more records of this species in recent years. However, it is still most frequent on the coast and very sporadic inland. It probably occurs wherever there is an adequate supply of restharrow, which tends to only grow in coastal areas and on calcareous soils.

2012 (CHF): This is mainly a coastal moth in Yorkshire with the main colonies at Spurn, Teesside and Flamborough though it occasionally turns up at scattered inland sites. There was a crash in numbers in 2008 with only four records in the county that year but the situation improved in 2011 with 41 records.

Recorded in 48 (24%) of 200 10k Squares.
First Recorded in 1875.
Last Recorded in 2022.
