The theorem of microlocal elliptic regularity is useful to determine the singularities of the solution of linear partial differential equations on manifolds. It states that if \(P\) is a linear partial differential operator of order \(m\), then \(\mathrm{WF}(u)\subset \mathrm{WF}(Pu)\cup \mathrm{char}(P)\), where \(\mathrm{char}(P)\) is the characteristic variety of \(P\) and \(u\) is a distribution. We propose an extension \(\mathrm{WF}_{\mathcal{F}}\) of such classical notion of wavefront set in order to capture different degrees of lack of \(\mathcal{F}\)-regularity of a distribution around a certain codirection \(\xi\), e.g. for \(\mathcal{F}=\) Sobolev or Hölder spaces. This allows us to investigate under what assumptions on \(\mathcal{F}\), \(\mathcal{G}\) the statement of the microlocal elliptic regularity theorem can be generalized to \(\mathrm{WF}_{\mathcal{F}}(u)\subset \mathrm{WF}_{\mathcal{G}}(Pu)\cup \mathrm{char}(P)\).
