A resident species usually occurring sparingly in a wide range of habitats, but it is sometimes fairly common to common in woods; a little more numerous flying naturally at dusk. Probably generally distributed in large areas, but high numbers are very local and distinctly episodic. This species is double-brooded, flying mainly from early May to early June and again from late June to early September. Adults have been seen in every week from early April to late September. Larvae feed on sallow including goat willow, (silver) birch, alder and beech. (Pratt, 2011)
