Status and ecology:

National Status: Nb

Resident. Residents are rarely seen in the wild but the elusive larva is sometimes fairly common on the chalk. Extremely local, distinctly episodic in numbers, and restricted to a thin band of colonies situated on the northern foot of the downs between Lewes and Arundel. Single-brooded, flying mainly from early June to early July. Larvae feed on the wood inside the stems of wayfaring-tree on the alkaline downs and in guelder-rose on acid heaths. (Pratt, 2011).
