For the county, we have a total of 9 records from 9 sites. First recorded in 1883.
Sutton & Beaumont, 1989: Status uncertain. The single specimen so far checked proved to be misidentified.
Argus 58, 2009: The few previously published Yorkshire records (none of which is recent) are unsubstantiated.
VC64. Bishop Monkton, 27.6.2009 gen. det. CHF (D&DB). FIRST CONFIRMED COUNTY RECORD.
2013 (CHF): There have now been more confirmed records in VC64. Other records remain unconfirmed. The moth is similar in appearance to several other members of the genus but the forewing has a more reticulated appearance and there is a blurred dark spot at two thirds. It is more likely to be found in wet marshy areas. Identification should be confirmed by dissection.
