Status and ecology:

Resident. Usually occurs singly or sparingly at mv light but it is sometimes fairly common on heathery commons and amongst evergreen plantations in West Sussex; apparently in danger of extinction in East Sussex, where colonies are scarce. Very local and irregular in numbers. Single-brooded, flying mainly from mid May to late June, sometimes from mid April, Larvae feed on pine. (Pratt, 2011).
