A notable occurrence as this moth has only been recorded from three vice-counties, the most northerly being VC29 (Cambridgeshire), furthermore, during the last twenty years all British records have come from VC15 (East Kent) (Beaumont, 1999).
Argus 58, 2009: There are only two previous county records of this nationally scarce moth; one of these was also from Potteric Carr NR in 2008. These present records indicate that it is resident at this site.
