General comments:
Former immigrant.

The moth was first recorded in Britain in 1847 and was allegedly resident from that year to about 1874 in East Sussex. It is otherwise known as a very rare immigrant, with two records in our area: St. Albans in 1865 and Bishops Stortford, 9th October 1956, this latter, supported by a specimen.
