Status and ecology:

National Status: Common

Resident since the 1950s, established locally for a time in East Sussex but not found there in the present century and now in just a few woods in the west. Single-brooded, flying mainly from June to August. May be limited by habitat as the larvae are said to feed on larch. (Pratt, 2011)
