Sutton & Beaumont, 1989:
VC62. York (Stainton, 1859b).
VC63. Greenfield by F. Buckley (Porritt 1909).
2013 (CHF): This endemic species has not been recorded in the county since 1909. The larval cases on tree trunks and rocks are similar to several other species especially Bankesia conspurcatella and Dahlica lichenella so the adults should be bred through. The wingless females should be dissected for confirmation.
