Resident. The moth usually occurs singly, sometimes sparingly, and occasionally fairly commonly, amongst deciduous woodland. Completely missing from the downs and treeless parts of the coast ; well distributed in the far east but only thinly so elsewhere. Extremely local if more than singletons are to be seen. Single-brooded, flying mainly from mid April to the second week in May. (Pratt, 2011)
