A well distributed moth that is increasing. It usually occurs singly at mv light, sometimes sparingly, in both vice-counties, although it is sometimes fairly common flying around its foodplants. It is single-brooded, mainly flying from early June to mid August, occasionally from late May to late August. The larvae feed in the seed-heads of Arctium, Carduus and Centaurea spp. (Pratt, 2011).
