Common

A resident species that is increasing. The moth generally occurs singly at mv light in a wide range of habitats in both vice-counties, although it is sometimes seen sparingly to fairly commonly in the west. It is single-brooded, flying mainly from late June to late August, occasionally from mid June. The larvae feed internally on oak acorns. (Pratt, 2011).
