A resident pug-moth which appears singly or in small numbers in a wide range of habitats, becoming fairly common in a few favoured locations across the county. It has a general distribution, but numbers are localised and irregular. It is double-brooded, flying mainly in two over-lapping emergences between mid April and late August. Larvae have been recorded feeding on the flowers of clematis (traveller's joy), hemp agrimony, golden-rod, hawthorn, dogwood and bramble. (Pratt, 2011)
