Davey, P., 2009: This species was separated from the Common Rustic2343 about twenty years ago, and as mentioned above, may only be differentiated with certainty by dissection. This has only been done for two specimens trapped on Portland, and therefore the status of the moth across the county is unknown. The species has a similar life cycle, range and diet to its close relative, and is likely to have an equivalent common and ubiquitous status in the county.
