Resident and immigrant. The moth usually occurs sparingly in coniferous woods and on heathland. Widespread, but local and missing from large areas. Single or double-brooded, flying mainly from mid July to early September, occasionally from early June. Various species of pine have been listed as larval foodplants on the continent, but larvae have yet to be discovered in Sussex. (Pratt, 2011).
