A nationally notable "A" species in the Red Data Book. Resident but in serious danger of extinction across the region and occurring singly or sparingly at mv light amongst mature deciduous woodland. Occasionally fairly common at Plashett Wood. Single-brooded, flying mainly from mid-May to late June. Larvae feed on dead oak leaves during winter, then ascend silver birch and other trees to pupate. (Pratt, 2011)
