Resident. Larvae are often fairly common or common amongst light deciduous woodland, adults much less common. Perhaps seriously under-recorded in both vice counties. Single -brooded flying mainly May although this has yet to be confirmed in Sussex. Larvae feed in the leaves of common elm and wych elm (Pratt, 2011)
