Nb

A resident species usually occurring singly or sparingly but it is occasionally fairly common to common in most of the county's mature deciduous woods. Well distributed in West Sussex, less so in the east of the county. High numbers are very local and very irregular. This species is single-brooded occurring mainly from early June to mid July, occasionally from mid May or to early August. Also seen on April 23rd 2007 at Fitzhall Lodge near Stadham Common (Midhurst). Larvae feed on oak. (Pratt, 2011)
