(Linnaeus, 1758) 2279 / 73.039

Morley's Final Catalogue: 'Somewhat scarce, but widely distributed' in 1890, when it was thought too general to merit localising. Later records are merely from Copdock (Hkg); and Ipswich (Pyett), where Baylis took it on 27 July 1895 at electric light, then a novelty which attracted many outlying moths. Several at Hemley in 1903 et. seqq. (Wlr); one at sugar in Gorleston during July 1935 (Mr).

Recent status: Fairly common and widespread.

Recorded in 53 (91%) of 58 10k Squares.
First Recorded in 1895.
Last Recorded in 2020.
