Peribatodes gemmaria (Brahm, 1791)

Status and ecology:

A resident species often fairly common to common in a wide range of inland habitats but it is generally a little less frequent along treeless parts of the coast; sometimes very common at Crowborough. Probably generally distributed but high numbers are local. This species is double or triple-brooded dependant upon season, occurring mainly in two overlapping emergences from mid June to early September, occasionally from the third week of May and or to the same week during September. A partial third brood has sporadically occurred during recent years from mid September to late October. Adults have been seen in every week from late April to Early November. Larvae feed on privet, lilac, ivy, honeysuckle, hawthorn, dock, heather and gorse. (Pratt, 2011)
