.....Probably under-recorded to a degree in
Nottinghamshire and officially known as a Nottinghamshire moth since one
was taken at MV light from Ravenshead in 2013
(McGeever, D. and McGeever, V.). There soon followed further
records and it was recorded new to the Sherwood Forest NNR in
April 2014, with a further record from Market Warsop the following year.
The most recent record is from Bramcote in 2020.
However, there is confusion as to the first official record of
this species in Nottinghamshire, as a record in the database of the
Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust, of one taken at light from Misson Carr in the very
north of Nottinghamshire in 2004, seems was never submitted to the
county recorder and so isn't officially recognised.
