National Status: Local

Resident. The moth generally occurs as occasional singletons in southern Sussex, although it is seen regularly and sometimes sparingly at Arundel; never detected in the north of the county. Single-brooded, flying mainly from the second week of June to early August, occasionally from late May. The larval foodplant has yet to be determined in Sussex, although elm has been listed from elsewhere. (Pratt, 2011).
