General comments:
Widespread resident.

The early date of this moth and the fact that it favours woodlands rather than towns and gardens implies a degree of under-recording and it is almost certainly widespread across most of the two counties.

Recorded in 25 (61%) of 41 10k Squares.
First Recorded in 1893.
Last Recorded in 2024.
