This Nationally notable 'A' resident and suspected occasional immigrant is seen singly or sparingly at mv light in a wide range of habitats. While it is probably generally distributed across much of the county, it is sometimes fairly common in parks and gardens near the coast and sporadically common in the extreme south-west, but scarce in the north. It is a single-brooded species chiefly on the wing from late July to early September. (Pratt, 2011)
