Notes: Nationally scarce (Nb) in fens, marshes, damp heathland, mosses and moorland in southern England and, very sparsely, in the remainder of the British Isles. In Hampshire known mainly from boggy areas in the New Forest, but also in the north-east of the county, in similar habitat. In both areas, the larva is associated with Creeping Willow. Not recorded from the Isle of Wight to date. Wingspan 24-28 mm. Differs from both Scarce Chocolate-tip C. anachoreta and Chocolate-tip C. curtula in smaller size and rather ill-defined chocolate-brown apical patch. Larva feeds on Creeping Willow, Eared Willow and Aspen, over-wintering as a pupa.
