First recorded in Britain in 2007 as larvae and later adults to pheromone lure in Cambridgeshire.
In mainland Europe, the moth is fairly widespread, but does not travel long distances, so it is thought that the British examples may have originated from imported Raspberry plants.
The larvae feed within the roots of Raspberry, over-wintering twice.
