While there is a UK colony in existence, where larvae feed on aspen, adults encountered in the southern coastal counties are believed to be of continental origin. The only unquestioned Sussex sightings were made at mv light at Elm's Farm, near Icklesham on July 17th 1999 and at Rye Harbour - at Winchelsea Beach and Lime Kiln Cottage - on June 14th and 29th (two) in 2006. (Pratt, 2011).
