The first Sussex record of this Nationally Notable moth was made in October 1996 at Compton when a few larval mines were found in oak leaves. These were seen again the following year and have since been discovered at Fishbourne during November 2001 and 2002, Stansted Forest in November 2006 and Storrington in November 2008 and 2009. A lone East Sussex caterpillar was found near Hurst Green in October 2004. (Pratt, 2011)
