Davey, P., 2009: A species confined to England and east Wales, the larva feeding on poplar (Populus spp.). In Dorset, the moth occurs wherever there is poplar, however, this is not a common tree and consequently the moth is generally at low density. Singletons do frequently turn up at light traps some distance away from their foodplant, and dispersal is suspected for many of these.
