A resident species. Larvae are often fairly common and sometimes common in deciduous woods in the far west of the county, though colonies may be less frequent elsewhere. Single brooded, flying mainly during June and July, although this has yet to be confirmed in Sussex. Larvae feed on oak. (Pratt, 2011)
