A widespread resident that normally occurs sparingly at mv light in most places, although it is often fairly common to common along parts of the coast and occasionally so inland. It is single-brooded, flying mainly from early May to late June, occasionally to mid July. The larvae feed in the shoots of wild and cultivated roses. (Pratt, 2011).
