Aston's Additions: Mr. E.W. Platten discovered the species at Needham Market on 10.xi.1937 when he found a male at light (Trans. S.N.S., Vol. III, p.295). It is now the subject of pilgrimages to Barking Woods but in fact has been found in several woods on the boulder-clay.
Recent Status: This beautiful moth is still regularly recorded in woods containing Field Maple on the boulder-clay to this day. It usually appears after the first frosts in mid-November and has been recorded as late as 6 February 1997.
