National Status: Local

Resident Larvae are sometimes common in West Sussex but less frequent in the East. Seriously under recorded but increasing. Double-brooded flying in May and again in July and August although this has yet to be confirmed in Sussex. Larvae feed on field maple and red Norway maple. (Pratt, 2011)
