Yorkshire Status: Fairly widespread resident.

Like the previous species, this is an early-flying moth of gardens, shrubby areas and woodland where wild roses grow. It is a little less common but is doing well across the county though it is not so common in the west of VC63. It is always an attractive moth to catch in April when much of the trap is filled with rather drab species.

Sutton & Beaumont, 1989: Now recorded from all five vice-counties and possibly relatively common in the north and west where it may be more common than A. badiata (Denis & Schiffermuller). Generally less common than that species over the rest of the County.

Recorded in 132 (66%) of 200 10k Squares.
First Recorded in 1847.
Last Recorded in 2023.
