A resident that usually occurs singly or sparingly at mv light across the county. It is widespread and is sometimes fairly common by day at a few sites. It is single-brooded, flying mainly from late June to the third week of August, occasionally from early June. The larvae feed on a great variety of deciduous trees and shrubs including apple, hawthorn, alder, sea-spurge, common dock and sea-buckthorn. (Pratt, 2011).
