Sutton & Beaumont, 1989: Not recorded since Porritt (1883-86). He gave records from Guisborough, Scarborough (VC62), Sheffield (VC63) and York (VC61/62/64).
Current status (CHF, 2011): Porritt listed Guisborough, Scarborough, Sheffield and York as sites for this moth, but there were no 20th Century records. A quite remarkable range expansion has taken place recently up the western side of the country and throughout Scotland. This population has gone on to colonise Northumberland and Durham and then spread south to VC62 in 2009. In 2011 there was evidence of further spread with records in VCs 62, 63 and 64.
