Yorkshire Status: Very rare and very local.

Sutton & Beaumont, 1989: There is one record shown in 10 km square SD95 of map 219 in MBGBI 10. This has been traced to Malham Tarn (VC64), post 1948 (BCE pers. comm.), however, there is no official record of this species in the County. It is a possible site for this species and Rutherford (1971) mentioned it as a species which might be found in Yorkshire. Without further details and verification, however, this record cannot be accepted and the species should not be counted on the Yorkshire list.

Beaumont, 2002:

VC64. Austwick, early 1990s (PC). NEW COUNTY RECORD.

2012 (CHF): This moth has been found again in 2011 at Austwick Moss, the site of previous records in 1989 and 1992. The database also contains two records from Malham dated 1954-8 and 1962, both by H. N. Michaelis and it is likely that these are genuine. It occurs just over the border in North Lancashire and it is highly likely that this unobtrusive moth occurs at other sites in the west of VC64 on boggy moorland.

Argus 87, 2019: The only previous county records have all come from the west of VC64, these moths being part of the south Cumbria/north Lancashire population. It is a major surprise therefore to find it at Strensall Common. As one of our smallest macros, this undistinguished-looking species of boggy moorland and heathland has probably been lurking undetected in this area for some time.

VC62. Moorside campsite, Strensall, 28.7.2019 (RD). NEW VICE-COUNTY RECORD.

Retained Specimen / Photograph will be Required.

Recorded in 5 (3%) of 200 10k Squares.
First Recorded in 1954.
Last Recorded in 2019.
