Yorkshire Status: Scarce and local resident.

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.

Argus 47, 2001-2004: VC65. Sedbusk, 26.7.2002(MS); Hutton Conyers, 26.5.2003, 17.10.2003 (CHF). NEW VICE-COUNTY RECORD.

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.

Recorded in 74 (37%) of 200 10k Squares.
First Recorded in 1867.
Last Recorded in 2022.
