Resident. Adults usually occur singly or sparingly at mv light amongst deciduous woodland, although occasional singletons also appear in less feral habitats; sometimes common when beaten out by day. The species is elusive, colonies are very local and isolated, and annual numbers fluctuate widely - but it is on the increase. Single-brooded, flying mainly from early August to the second week of November, occasionally from the second week of July or to early December and then, after a brief hibernation, from late January to early May, sometimes to early June. Adults have been seen during almost every week of the year, except for those in December and January Larvae feed on the flowers and fruit of pear, hawthorn, sloe and apple. (Pratt, 2011).
