A Nationally Scarce declining resident. The moth usually occurs singly at mv light in a few deciduous woods, although it is sometimes common at Rewell Wood. It is rare in East Sussex. It is single-brooded, flying mainly from mid May to late June. The larvae feed on beech and are also said to eat garden fruit, including plum. (Pratt, 2011).
