Status and ecology:

This declining species usually appears as a singleton to mv light, chiefly in downland habitats in West Sussex, where the larvae feed on juniper, and also in domestic gardens in East Sussex, where the larval food-plants are probaby introduced ornamental conifers. Colonies are thinly distributed in the north and scarce in the south, where they can be seen in a single brood mainly from early June until the second week of September. (Pratt, 2011)
