Argus 50, 2005:
VC64. Bellflask, East Tansfield, 21.6.2005 (B&SM). NEW COUNTY RECORD.

Current status (HEB, 2011): With a distribution falling just short of Yorkshire this was a likely moth to be added to our list. There is currently a single record from Bellflask (VC64) in 2005 but it has the potential to be found elsewhere in the county.
