A resident that is in danger of extinction in both vice-counties. The moth usually occurs singly or sparingly flying by day or drinking from puddles, but it is occasionally fairly common around stands of Aspen. Overlooked, but extremelly local, distinctly irregular in numbers, and recently restricted to a handful of woods. Single-brooded, flying mainly from late March to late April. The Larvae feed on Aspen. (Pratt, 2011)
