General comments:
Immigrant and recently established, widespread but local Resident.

Formerly an immigrant to Britain from Europe, this moth was a great rarity in our area. Recently, it has been resident in some southern coastal counties and there are signs that this area of residency is expanding; the numbers of individuals, capture dates and other features are clear indication that this expansion has now included Herts and Middlesex.

Recorded in 27 (66%) of 41 10k Squares.
First Recorded in 1954.
Last Recorded in 2023.
