Common

A resident species, often fairly common, sometimes common and even very common by day throughout the region. Well distributed away from the coast. Colonies are extremely local, any real numbers often being restricted just to the extremities of a particular oak tree's branches. Single-brooded, flying mainly from mid-April to mid-June. Larvae feed on fallen deciduous leaves. (Pratt, 2011)
