Yorkshire Status: Rare and very local resident.

Annulet is not a common moth in Yorkshire. We have two populations, one on the north east coast, at several sites from Teesmouth down to Flamborough, and a much smaller and elusive population in the Dales, with most records coming from the Dib Scar area of upper Wharfedale. There was an unusual record in the south of VC63 in 2011. It previously occurred at other sites in inland VC62 but has not been seen there for many years. Numbers are probably stable. Most sites in the UK are in rocky coastal areas. There are other inland colonies, often on limestone grassland, but many of these have been lost.

Sutton & Beaumont, 1989: Rather rare in Yorkshire with only seven recent sites, however most of these are inland, a change in distribution since the last list (YNU, 1970).
