DISTRIBUTION: Moths of this species are fairly common. They are also widely distributed residents in the British Isles, though they tend to be localised.

 

WING SPAN: 25 to 30mm.                                   STATUS: Resident.

        

FLIGHT PERIOD: The moth is single brooded, and adults are on the wing during June and July. They only occasionally come to light, and the adults fly from dusk onwards.

LARVAL PERIOD: Eggs are laid in August, and do not hatch until May of the following year. Caterpillar feed until late June, and then pupate within folded leaves of the food plant. Adult moths emerge soon after in July.

 

HABITAT: Habitats are bushy places where the food plants grow, and include wood land fringes, hedgerows, disused railway lines, road side verges, heaths, commons etc.

 

FOOD PLANT/S:  Food plants are wild Dog Rose, Burnet Rose and occasionally cultivated roses.

 

SIMILAR SPECIES: None.
