This species was listed by H.Goss and W.H.B.Fletcher in the Victoria County History collation of 1905 as being recorded in Hassocks. The only other western reports concern single vacated caterpillar mines in alder near Rogate in 1996 and Storrington in 2009. The initial East Sussex record was made under unspecified circumstances and is illustrated on a national distribution map published by Emmet in 1976. Larvae have also been encountered in the Lewes district in 1977 and at Hurst Green in 2006. (Pratt, 2011)
