A resident species usually occurring sparingly but is sometimes fairly common and occasionally common near evergreen plantations, especially where planted on parts of the south-western downs. In West Sussex the species is widespread to the west of Pulborough but in the east it is only known from between Sedlescombe and Beckley. Very local and irregular in appearance in most places. This species is single-brooded occurring mainly from late June to the third week of August, occasionally from mid June or to early September. Larvae feed on spruce. (Pratt, 2011)
