Resident. Occurs sparingly or fairly commonly at mv light in oak woods. Widespread, but any numbers are very local and episodic. Generally double-brooded, flying mainly from early May to mid June and again more numerously from late July to late August. Specimens seen in flight throughout September and a little later seem to be representatives of a third emergence. Adults have been seen in every week from late April to early October. Larvae feed on oak. (Pratt, 2011)
