Morley's Final Catalogue: Continues to be very rare, and to occur but singly. Playford (Revd. Joseph Greene); Aldeburgh (Dr. Hele); one in a garden at Stowmarket in 1915 (Platten). Brandon (Dr. Wheeler of Norwich and T. Brown of Cambridge).
Recent Status: Extinct as a resident in the county. The first county record since 1915 was at St. Olaves on 04.07.1986 (H. Jenner) and was most likely an immigrant.
Further records of immigrant examples followed at Landguard on 01.07.1997 and 18.07.2002 (N. Odin); Bawdsey Hall on 28.08.2014 and 27.07.2016 (M.J. Deans) and at Hollesley on 25.06.2017 (R. Watson).
Identification: A very distinctive, chunky green moth unlikely to be confused with any other noctuids.
