Argus 50, 2005:
VC65. Foxglove Covert MoD, Catterick, 3.6.2005 conf. HEB (CHF). NEW COUNTY RECORD.

Current status (HEB, 2011): This moth has a south-eastern distribution. A record from Catterick (VC65) in 2005 is unusually far north but some of the Pammene species are not easily identified and both this moth and albuginana may occur more widely than is currently realised.
