Local

A resident species, usually occurring singly or sparingly near the coast between Bexhill and Kent but occasionally fairly common at mv light. Very rare in the West. Double-brooded in overlapping flights, flying mainly from early May to early August and again from late September to early November. Larvae feed on London plane in this country and on Eucalyptus and Berberis spp. abroad. (Pratt, 2011)
