Status and ecology:

National Status: Common

A resident species. In West Sussex larval mines are often fairly common and sometimes common among deciduous woodland, although adults are apparently much less numerous. In East Sussex such borings are widespread but perhaps under recorded. Increasing. Double brooded, flying mainly during May and June and again in August. Larvae feed on plum, sloe and damson. (Pratt, 2011)
