Naturalised and increasing, through accidental introduction in garden plants from Australia, throughout much of southern England, north to Lancashire; until recently only known from south-west England, this is a species which appears to have undergone a rapid range expansion. Since 1997, recorded frequently in Fleet, and since 2002 increasingly common along the south coast. Wingspan 13-18mm. The pinkish orange termen make this an unmistakable species. Larva feeds on fallen leaves and leaf litter. The pRDB3 status often indicated for this species is a misnomer and should be ignored.
