A resident and suspected immigrant. The moth usually occurs at mv light, sometimes sparingly, in a few places across the county. It is only patchily distributed and is single-brooded, flying mainly from mid July to mid August, occasionally from the third week of June. The larvae feed on the seeds of sycamore. (Pratt, 2011).
