Nb

A resident species which is in decline. The Waved Carpet is often common in woods and on heaths in West Sussex but is only episodically fairly common in the same habitats in East Sussex. Colonies are localised and currently restricted to two distinct zones located to the west of Arundel in the west and to the east of Newhaven in the east. Flying in a single brood, adults can be seen from mid June until mid August. Larvae feed on alder, sallow and silver birch. (Pratt, 2011)
