Status .....Currently just a handful of recent Nottinghamshire records, but probably a widespread moth of areas containing stands of Broom. Most easily recorded as a larva during the late-Winter and early Spring, by examining shoots of the foodplant which have been fixed together with silk. The larva is a rich plum colour.
