Resident. Usually occurs singly or sparingly in a wide range of habitats but it is sometimes fairly common near deciduous woodland. Widespread, but very local and irregular in any numbers. Perhaps decreasing in central Sussex. Single-brooded, flying mainly from the second week of June to late August, sometimes from late May and occasionally to early September. Larvae feed on birch.
