Only two of this species - a proposed Red Data Book Class 3 (Davis, 2012) insect - have ever been detected in Sussex. A female was netted by day flying around bramble at Northchapel in May 2009 and the other was photographed near Powdermill reservoir in May 2011. The larval foodplant is not known for certain in this country. (Pratt, 2011)
