|Status .....Presumed to be a rare migrant in Nottinghamshire, it was first found in the north of the county in 1996 and there have been a few records since. Leicestershire has one record of S. palealis and there are populations along the south and south-east coasts of the UK. The individual pictured was one of a discreet colony found on Warsop Main Pit Top in 2006 and moths were again present there in 2007. This species is obviously established at this site now.|
