Nationally Scarce B

The first county record of this species was made by H. Cooke and J.N.Winter on the weald at Brighton, this being noted in their work of 1860. Then the earliest East Sussex record came from the Hastings area, where it was described as a rarity in Reverend E.N. Bloomfield's list of 1878. Later Victorian discoveries were made at Fernhust, North Ambersham and Wolstonbury, but aside from the Haslemere district, these were the last good Sussex records. Larvae feed on most parts of bramble including the fruit. (Pratt, 2011)
