Davey, P., 2009: A species found widely across England and Wales but local in Scotland, the larva feeding on red currant (Ribes rubrum) and black currant (Ribes nigrum). In Dorset, the moth is found almost exclusively in urban areas close to allotments and nurseries where the host foodplants are grown. Although red currant is a frequent understory shrub in damp woodland, no colonies have yet been encountered in these 'natural' situations.
