Thought to be restricted to the coastal reed-beds between Thorpeness and Benacre in Suffolk. The first Norfolk County record of two specimens were taken in South East Norfolk in 2012 (B. Jones, 31/07/12).
The "white mantle" (a pale fringe along the front edge of the thorax) can be very difficult to see, and the species can be confused with Brown-veined Wainscot (A. dissoluta). This has a small black central spot on the underside of both hindwing and forewing, absent in A. neurica.
New UK BAP priority species.
