Davey, P., 2009: A local species restricted to coastal districts in south-east England, the larva feeding on a variety of deciduous tree species. In Dorset, the moth has been seen just once. The individual was recorded in cyclonic conditions with a gentle, mainly easterly airflow which suggests a wanderer from the UK colonies in Kent, Sussex or Hampshire or even from Normandy: West Bexington, at MV on 15 September 1995 (R Eden).
