Species Account

Beaumont, 2002:
VC63. Potteric Carr, 24.8.1996 (RIH). NEW COUNTY RECORD.

Current status (CHF, 2011): A single record from Potteric Carr in 1996. The southern populations seem healthy, and this moth might still occur very thinly in the south of VC63 feeding on Traveller's Joy Clematis vitalba.
