Resident & Migrant. Local and rare in the southern half of England and the southern half of Wales.
Recorded from a single site at Commins Coch in the west of the county. This nationally scarce species turns up in very small numbers every year at the same site. Presumably there is a small breeding population there. The foodplant is present. An excellent record for the county.
