Yorkshire Status: Rare wanderer, probable future colonist.

This is a recent addition to the British list with the first record at New Romney in 2002. Since then, records have gradually increased and it appears to be resident in coastal counties from Devon to Suffolk with scattered records of presumed migrants even further north. It is usually a fairly distinctive species to identify but it is possible to mistake it for Pale Mottled Willow, some forms of which can look very similar. The larvae feed on various low-growing herbaceous plants so it is not constrained by habitat. We have been expecting it to colonise our area, so it was no great surprise when one turned up at Fordon Chalk Banks on 25/9/2023. If its progress continues at the same rate, it is likely to become resident in Yorkshire.
