Sutton & Beaumont, 1989: Widespread, recorded from all five vice-counties. Cocoons can be found commonly under flakes of sycamore bark but the moth is rather infrequently encountered.
Argus 69, 2013: E.F. Hancock, while accumulating Tortricidae records in the 1980s, informed HEB that this moth was recorded from VC65, but without details. The occurrence below is the first for which we have data.
