sorry, no pictures available for this species yet
Sutton & Beaumont, 1989: Recorded from all five vice-counties where it is widespread and sometimes fairly common but perhaps less frequent than formerly.
2013 (CHF): This species seems to have decreased in numbers and is now very local in the county. It is a moth of woodland and sometimes gardens where the larvae feed on raspberry.
