Nationally Scarce B

A very local, declining resident. It generally occurs singly in a very few deciduous woods in both vice-counties, although it is sometimes fairly common in Rewell Wood. It is single-brooded, flying mainly from late April to late June. The larvae feed on buckthorn and possibly birch. (Pratt, 2011).
