Davey, P., 2009: A widespread species in England, Wales and southern Scotland, the larva feeding gregariously in a mass of spun leaves of oak (Quercus spp.). In Dorset, the moth is marginally more widespread than Conobathra repandana1436 occupying open areas such as heathland containing scrubby oak and parkland, as well as old oak/birch woodland, and where it occurs it is locally common.
