Morley's Final Catalogue: Not recorded in the county during Morley's time.

Recent Status:The sole county and third British record came from Blythburgh on 24 July 2014 (D. Wilson) the night after one at Weybourne, Norfolk. The records were associated with a significant immigration from the east, including the arrival of Bedstraw Hawk-moth and Scarce Silver Y.

The only previous British record was from Bodenham (VC36) on 29.06.2006. A moth reported to be expanding its range on the continent so further records are likely.
