General comments:
Extinct resident.

Doubtless some moths will have been classed as vagrants to our area, but our map shows clearly a spread of records relating to a discrete habitat area - the North London Woodlands, that characterise the Herts and Middlesex boundary area. This points most strongly to former residency. The species is prevalent on the coast and inland within the Breckland Region.

Recorded in 7 (17%) of 41 10k Squares.
First Recorded in 1888.
Last Recorded in 1961.
