National Status: Local

Resident and suspected immigrant. The moth usually occurs singly at mv light, sometimes sparingly, in a wide range of habitats. Very irregular in appearance. Double-brooded, flying mainly throughout June and again from early August to the third week of September. Adults have been seen in every week from early June to late September. Larvae feed inside spindle berries, although this has yet to be confirmed from Sussex experience. (Pratt, 2011).
