(Linnaeus, 1758) 1887 / 70.207

Davey, P., 2009: A widespread but sometimes local and single brooded species in Britain, the larva feeding on sallow (Salix spp.), poplar (Populus spp.) and hazel (Corylus avellana). In Dorset the moth is common in damp woodland and in wetland where sallow grows, and frequent in woodland where hazel is an abundant understory shrub. The national norm is of a single summer brood, but a partial bivoltine cycle in addition to the single summer brood is suggested by the county data.
