49.2790 (B&F: 1169)
A widespread resident that generally occurs singly or sparingly at mv light in deciduous woods across the county, although it is sometimes fairly common to common. The moth is single-brooded, flying mainly from mid June to the second week of August, occasionally from late May. The larvae feed inside the young shoots of oak, sallow and on aspen, hawthorn, hornbeam and sweet chestnut. A pupa has also been found on sanicle. (Pratt, 2011).
