Common

Resident. Occurs sparingly at light, but is sometimes common in a wide range of habitats in both vice-counties. Generally single-brooded, flying mainly from mid June to late August. A partial second emergence has been recorded in recent decades, appearing from the second week in October until the months end. Larvae feed on maple and sycamore. (Pratt, 2011).
