Morley's Final Catalogue: [Two L. lutarella, L., were taken by our Member Mr. Wiltshire, 9 miles north of Suffolk at the Horsey coast on 9 July 1936].

In recent years has been seen at Lowestoft, Kessingland, Walberswick, Dunwich, Orfordness, Havergate Island, Hollesley and Bawdsey.
Identification: Very small and could possibly be confused with a runt Scarce Footman or one of the pyralidae grass moths.
