VC64. Ellington Banks MoD, 21.5.2010, gen. det. (CHF). NEW COUNTY RECORD.
Current status (HEB, 2011): Until recently confused with C. alcyonipennella (Koll.) this moth was first recorded in Britain in 2002. The only Yorkshire occurrence to date is from Ellington Banks MoD (VC64) in 2010. A moth requiring dissection for a positive determination, it may prove to be an overlooked resident.
