A resident that usually occurs sparingly in both vice-counties, although it is sometimes fairly common to common at mv light in the west. It is single-brooded, flying mainly from late May to mid September. The larvae feed on holly and sloe and have also been associated with black poplar. (Pratt, 2011).
