Resident. The moth usually occurs singly or fairly commonly at mv light, but is sometimes common amongst deciduous woodland; rare along treeless parts of the coast. Widespread, but high numbers are very local and episodic. Single-brooded, flying mainly from early April to late June, occasionally from late March or to mid July. Larvae feed on oak. (Pratt, 2011)
