Status .....Surprisingly still a Grade 3 listed moth in Nottinghamshire, despite being extremely widespread with records from all parts. The moth is especially common in the more Pine forested areas of Sherwood Forest, but there is the possiblity that it may become less common as Pine plantations are taken out.
