The adult Red-belted Clearwing moth is on the wing between June and early August. It is very local and scarce in Warwickshire with only a handful of records since the turn of the 20th Century although its distribution has expanded in recently years as more people are attracting males using pheromone lures.
The Red-belted Clearwing moth can be found in orchards, gardens and hedgerows, indeed, anywhere where the larval foodplants occur.
