General comments:
Widespread but local resident.

This appears to have been a rare moth until quite recently. Foster (1937) lists only two captures. However, it appears quite common today if the correct habitat is examined.

Recorded in 32 (78%) of 41 10k Squares.
First Recorded in 1930.
Last Recorded in 2023.
