Davey, P., 2009: A widespread species in Britain, the larva feeding nocturnally on sallow and willow (Salix spp.). In Dorset, the moth is locally common in open situations where sallow flourishes or where willows line river valleys. The Red-line Quaker is usually at low density in woodland and rare in sallow-free woods.
