A resident that usually occurs sparingly but it is occasionally fairly common at mv light in woods. Well distributed in the far east and west, but less so elsewhere. Very local and distinctly irregular in numbers. Declining in central Sussex. Double-brooded, flying mainly from mid May to the third week of June and again from late June to mid August, although adults have been seen in every week from late Aprol to the third week of August. Larvae feed on Woodruff, Bedstraw and Sallow. (Pratt, 2011)
