Resident. Old records may have been misidentifications of C. betulella. The first definite example was not recorded until 1993 and single adults have subsequently been recorded between late June and mid July at half a dozen sites scattered across the two counties. Larval cases have been found on birch at two sites during October (Pratt, 2011).
