Irregular and uncommon immigrant

Until quite recently, records were rather sparse and numbers of moths low. Although that might reflect the number of of active recorders in the region, there has certainly been an increase in the frequency of reports since about 2006.

Recorded in 25 (61%) of 41 10k Squares.
First Recorded in 1932.
Last Recorded in 2023.
