General comments:
Widespread but local resident.

Ash is the presumed larval foodplant, but is often absent from trap sites. This may suggest that the moth moves about the landscape. Most records in fact relate to sites that might be acting as hibernation sites, rather than breeding areas.

Recorded in 23 (56%) of 41 10k Squares.
First Recorded in 1930.
Last Recorded in 2023.
