General comments:
Widespread but local resident.

Although not usually present in particularly large numbers, this is nevertheless still a common moth, or at least it seems so in areas where currants are still grown in gardens. Away from domestic gardens, allotments and the like the moth appears to be far less easily encountered.

Recorded in 31 (76%) of 41 10k Squares.
First Recorded in 1887.
Last Recorded in 2023.
