Immigrant and currently extinct episodic resident. Usually occurs singly, occasionally sparingly at mv light. Distinctly episodic in appearance, modern records have chiefly been confined to south-western corner of county and to Rye. Single-brooded, flying mainly from late September to late October. No record of specific discovery of feral larvae in Sussex. In captivity young larvae have been reared on bulbous buttercup and lesser celandine, when older on ash and privet. (Pratt, 2011)
