Davey, P., 2009: A local species in southern England and Wales, the larva feeding on barberry (Berberis vulgaris) and cultivated barberry (Berberis spp.). In Dorset, the few records of this species that exist fall within the period August to October, too late for the spring-flying Scarce Tissue, but coincident with the pre-hibernation flight period of the Tissue1790. In the absence of voucher specimens, all records have been incorporated within the account of the Tissue. This leaves the following old record: Christchurch, (Fassnidge).
