Davey, P., 2009: Apart from a few localities elsewhere in southern Britain, a species that is very much confined to the calcareous soils of south-east England, the larva feeding on field maple (Acer campestre). There is just one old record from Dorset, and its absence from suitable maple-rich habitat on chalky soils, especially in the north-east of the county is puzzling: Rempstone, in May 1926 (H Michaelis).
