Yorkshire Status: Very rare migrant.

This Beautiful moth is a scarce migrant, with most records along the south coast, though it occasionally turns up further north. It was once resident in the East Anglian fens but seems to have disappeared around 1915. Yorkshire records are as follows:

Easington (Spurn) 25, 26 & 28/6/2019. These may have been the same moth retrapped.
Easington (Spurn) 7 & 8/8/2020.
Welwick 15/8/2020.
Askham Bryan 15/6/2020.

These records are currently the most northerly on the distribution maps.
