Common

A widespread resident, although it is missing from central areas. The moth generally occurs singly at mv light, sometimes sparingly, in a few deciduous woods across the county. It can sometimes be fairly common to common in a few places. It is double-brooded, flying mainly from the second week of April to late June, occasionally to mid July, and again from late July to the third week of September. The larvae feed on birch and alder. (Pratt, 2011).
