Resident species, occurring sparingly but is sometimes fairly common at mv light in gardens. Only well-established in central districts. Very local, episodic in any numbers, and in decline. Single-brooded, flying mainly from mid May to late June, occasionally from early May or to mid August. Larvae feed chiefly on Monterey cypress, Lawson’s cypress, much less frequently on juniper. (Pratt, 2011).
