A resident species often fairly common at mv light in a wide range of habitats, common in bushy places, and occasionally very common in deciduous woods; rare along treeless parts of the coast. Generally distributed in large areas, but perhaps in decline in central Sussex. High numbers are surprisingly local. This species is single-brooded occurring mainly from the second week of June to mid August, although adults have been seen in every week from early May to mid September. Larvae feed on sloe, hawthorn, (silver) birch, dock, bramble, honeysuckle, heather and gorse. (Pratt, 2011)
