Davey, P., 2009: A rare and decreasing species, restricted to deciduous woods in south-east England containing hornbeam (Carpinus betulus). In Dorset, the moth has been seen on just one occasion coincident with a south-easterly airflow; northern France is a likely source for this example: West Bexington, at MV light on 24 June 2008 (R Eden).
