sorry, no pictures available for this species yet
Sutton & Beaumont, 1989: This is a southern species in Britain and it is significant that Mr R. Butterfield (the County Recorder for lepidoptera) did not include it in his report for 1938. Until further evidence is available it cannot be admitted as a Yorkshire moth.
