For the county, we have a total of 109 records from 13 sites. First recorded in 1975.
Sutton & Beaumont, 1989: First recorded in Yorkshire in 1975 it is evidently now well established in the extreme south of VC63.
Beaumont, 2002: Unlike most of the recently arrived species to the County this moth has not showed any real signs of extending its range, in fact it appears to be recorded less frequently than during the 1980s.
Argus 47, 2001-04: This moth remains local in its traditional county localities in the south of VC63 but a record from VC65 represents a considerable northward increase in range.
