In Somerset this moth has not really followed the national trend of expansion. It remains a very local species, most commonly found in wooded settings on acidic soils, such as in the Blackdowns, around Wiveliscombe, the oak woods on the Wiltshire border and the Priddy/Stockhill area. Numbers increased around the turn of the century, but have subsequently declined again.
