Don Lafontaine treats this species in his new volume in the Moths of
America North of Mexico series that came out last fall, (the Noctuidae;
Noctuini volume - Fasc. 27.3).

He states it is a Palearctic species that was introduced at Halifax in 1979
and has since become established and spread.  There is also apparently a
similar and closely related species, Noctua comes, which has recently
appeared on the West Coast (BC).
