Nationally Scarce B

Nationally Notable Class B moth was discovered in Brighton just prior to 1905 under unspecified circumstances. A later eastern record concerns a single specimen in Friston Forest on July 7th 1977. In other counties the moth is single-brooded, flying during July. Larvae feed on apple, pear and sloe. (Pratt, 2011).
