Yorkshire Status: Common and widespread resident.

This moth of damp woodland feeds on a variety of broadleaved treees. Despite the comments below in Sutton and Beaumont, it has probably always been common in the county. Porritt certainly thought so as he branded it "common" in 1883. Our population seems to be healthy and numbers are stable. It is found all across the county and seems to have increased its distribution nationally

Sutton & Beaumont, 1989: Previously only locally common, this species has become much more widespread and generally common since the mid-1970s. Now recorded from many sites over all five vice-counties, it is probably present wherever there are sallows.

Recorded in 165 (83%) of 200 10k Squares.
First Recorded in 1883.
Last Recorded in 2023.
