Davey, P., 2009: A species found over much of southern Britain, but more local further north, the larva feeding on wild rose (Rosa canina). In Dorset, the moth is common in scrub and hedgerow habitat wherever wild rose is to be found. The distribution and frequency is much the same as for the Shoulder-stripe1746, but the Streamer is on the wing about a fortnight later, on average.
