Sutton & Beaumont, 1989:
VC64. Grassington by T.H. Allis (Stainton, 1854).
2013 (CHF): A provisional RDB1 species, very rare in limestone grassland. The larvae feed on burnet rose. We just have the one historical record from the Grassington area - probably Bastow Wood/Grass Wood. It is not impossible that this species is still present in the vicinity and it should be searched for.
