Status and ecology:

National Status: Common

Resident. Larvae usually occur singly or sparingly in deciduous woods in both vice-counties, although they are sometimes locally common in the west.
Double-brooded, flying mainly during May and August.
While Victorian collectors associated this species with the leaves of apple, hawthorn, pear, and whitebeam, modern-day enthusiasts have only found larvae specifically feeding on hawthorn, quince, wild service tree, rowan, and whitebeam. (Pratt, 2011)
