Sutton & Beaumont, 1989: There have only been a few recent records of this species in Yorkshire. It was previously quite common at Scarborough (VC62) and Everingham (VC61) (Porritt, 1883-86, 1904) and A. Smith also recorded it at Pickering (VC62) (Walsh, 1956).
Beaumont, 2002: This moth has occurred widely in recent years, although it may have been under-recorded in the past there appears to have been a genuine increase.
2012 (CHF): Widely distributed in oak-rich areas all over the county but in small numbers - 90% of our records are of single moths. We only receive about ten records each year of this species. Take care not to mistake it for one of the Tortricidae.
