First Sussex sighting was in 1886. It was then found at Walburton in 1994 and seen every year since from early June to early July under the fronds of its food plant hartstongue fern, rarely encountered at light. Larval feeding signs were identified in 2009 at Duncton Hill. The first East Sussex record was from Hastings where larval signs were found in 2002 and again a cocoon was found in Marline Wood in 2009. (Pratt, 2011)
