Probably resident, this species is in serious danger of extinction in both halves of the county. Occurs singly at mv light preferring bushy places. Single-brooded, flying from mid July to the third week of September and then again after hibernation from the second week of April to the third week of May. Larvae feed on buckthorn. (Pratt, 2011)
