National Status: Nb

Resident. In danger of extinction in East Sussex, where the moth is usually seen in singletons, although it sometimes appears sparingly at mv light in deciduous woods; presumed extinct in West Sussex, where it was last detected in 1996. Thinly distributed across the east, but very local and episodic in appearance. Double-brooded, flying mainly from late May to late June and sometimes again from late July to the third week in August. Larvae feed on aspen and “dwarf sallows” including creeping sallow. (Pratt, 2011)
