A resident species often fairly common to common at mv light in deciduous woods especially in the north and it is sometimes very common to abundant near Plaistow. Well distributed away from treeless parts of the coast, but high numbers are very local and distinctly episodic. This species is single-brooded occurring mainly from early February to late March, occasionally from late January or to mid April. Larvae feed on oak. (Pratt, 2011)
