Local

Resident. Adults usually occur singly at mv light in a very few places in both vice-counties, although it is sometimes fairly common at dusk at Newhaven; larvae are sometimes significantly more numerous than the resultant adults. Increasing. Double-brooded, the white form flying mainly from mid June to early August, the grey variant more numerously from early September to the third week of November, and then after hibernation from February to April. Larvae feed on English elm. (Pratt, 2011).
