Added to the British list in 1855 by H.T. Stainton. (Ent. Annual, 1855)

It is believed that the following listing by Stephens in 1834 is erroneous and refers to an entirely different species, possibly Athrips mouffetella. (B. Heckford)
"Not uncommon in gardens and hedges within the metropolitan district, also found near Dover, in Norfolk, Suffolk, the New Forest, Devonshire, &c." (Stephens, 1834).
