A resident species, well-distributed in the West where larvae are sometimes fairly common to common amongst deciduous woodland; less so in the East. Increasing. Single-brooded, flying mainly during June although this is not confirmed within the county. Larvae feed on the leaves of apple and hawthorn. (Pratt, 2011)
