Resident. Larvae usually occur singly or sparingly in a few locations in both vice counties, but perhaps seriously under-recorded. Double-brooded, flying mainly during May and August, although yet to be confirmed in Sussex. Larvae feed on our native black poplar and its hybrids Italian poplar and probably balsam poplar.
