Very local and decreasing in southern England.

Added to the Norfolk list in error by C.G. Barrett in 1873. Record taken from the 1834 Sketch of the Natural History of Yarmouth by C. J and J. Paget in which it is listed as:
Nola Strigulalis - trunks of trees on the Quay; rare.
According to the Stephens catalogue of 1829, this translates as Least Black Arches. [JW]
