Davey, P., 2009: A species confined to the coasts of south-west England and west Wales, the larva feeding on lichens growing on rocks. In Dorset, the moth has been recorded on thirty-three occasions with just under half of these seen during the summer of 2004; all are suspected immigrants. The moth occurs across much of Iberia, north-west Africa, central and eastern Europe.
