General comments:

The moth flies early in the year and is not a characteristic species of domestic garden: There can be do doubt that it is overlooked in many area for want of appropriate survey effort. That said, repeated searches in North Herts have failed to produce it. It is likely to be genuinely rare with us.

Recorded in 10 (24%) of 41 10k Squares.
First Recorded in 1936.
