Resident and suspected immigrant. Usually occurs sparingly or fairly commonly but it is sometimes common at mv light near deciduous woodland. Well distributed, but high numbers are local. Double-brooded, flying mainly from mid April to early July and again from late July to early September. However, adults have been seen in every week from the second week of April to late September. Larvae feed on birch and probably alder. (Pratt, 2011)
