Morley's Final Catalogue: Not recorded in the country during Morley's time.
The first British records were from the Norfolk Broads in 1961.
Recent Status: The first county record came from Bawdsey Hall on the night of 03.08.2015 (M.J. Deans). Arriving on the same night as a Speckled Footman of the continental race arenaria - this moth was a likely immigrant. This is only the second record of an immigrant in the country, following one at Grain, Kent in 2006.
A second county record followed shortly, from North Cove SWT, on 07.07.2017 (SMG). This site is close to the only known British colonies in the Norfolk broads and occurred on a very warm night ideal for dispersal. The moth most likely wandered from there, although there must remain the possibility that the moth may have colonised this part of the county.
Identification: Compare with larger and slimmer Dotted Footman.
