A resident that normally occurs singly at mv light in deciduous woods across the county. It is increasing and well distributed in the west, but very rare in East Sussex. It is single-brooded, flying mainly from late April to mid June, occasionally to early July. The larvae feed on oak, sweet chestnut, beech and hornbeam. (Pratt, 2011).
