A resident species usually occurring singly, although it is occasionally fairly common amongst deciduous woodland. Distinctly episodic in appearance in most places. This species is single-brooded flying mainly from early June to the third week of August, occasionally from mid May or to late August. The larval foodplant has yet to be determined in Sussex although unspecified mosses have been mentioned elsewhere. (Pratt, 2011).
