There are few records in Sussex. Caterpillar mines have been recorded in October at Sidlesham (2003), and on Ebernoe Common, Marline Wood and St Helen's (all in 2009). An adult was identified near Lewes in May, 1990 and later larvae were seen there. All records are associated with alder. Nationally single-brooded, adults generally fly during August elsewhere.
