Resident. Both larvae and adults usually occur singly in a few wet habitats in both vice-counties, although the early stages are sometimes fairly common to common in West Sussex. In decline. Nationally double-brooded, flying mainly during May and June, and again in August, although the few feral adult records made in Sussex date to April and May.
Larvae feed on white willow, osier, grey willow, eared willow, crack willow, and goat willow. (Pratt, 2011)
