Proposed Red Data Book Class 1 and a Biodiversity Action Plan Species. Suspected immigrant and episodic colonist. Perhaps long extinct in both vice-counties- there are no 20th century records – the moth has been detected here twice during recent years. Double-brooded, flying mainly from early May to late June, and occasionally again during August. Larvae feed on hornbeam. (Pratt, 2011).
