A resident species usually occurring singly at mv light or occasionally sparingly in a wide range of habitats. Well distributed away from the north east. Single-brooded, though until recently, it occurred in two distinct flight times. Now it typically flies straight through from early July to late September. The larvae feed on sallow, willow and alder. (Pratt 2011)
