A resident, Nationally Notable Class B moth. It generally occurs singly, sometimes sparingly at mv light, in a few deciduous woods in both vice-counties. It is single-brooded, flying mainly from late May to early July, occasionally to late July. The larvae are said to feed on the catkins of birch, although alder and goat willow have also been noted elsewhere. (Pratt, 2011).
