A widespread resident but very localised moth which can be fairly common to common in evergreen plantations. It is currently absent in the south of the county eastwards of Arundel. The adult visits mv light sparingly during a single brood from early May to late June. A partial second emergence sometimes occurs from mid to late July until mid August. Larvae feed on Larch.
