Resident. Usually occurs sparingly but it is occasionally common at mv light in woods. Widespread, and generally distributed in large areas, but high numbers are very local and distinctly episodic. Chiefly single-brooded, it flies from locate May to early August. A partial second emergence sometimes takes place, at any time from the second week of August to early October. Adults have been seen in every week from late April to early October. Larvae feed on bramble and raspberry. (Pratt, 2011)
