Resident species often occurring sparingly to fairly commonly at mv light in a wide range of habitats. Occasionally common in woods and probably generally distributed. Usually single-brooded, flying mainly from mid-May to mid-August, but an occasional partial second emergence in September/October. Larvae feed on elm, hornbeam, cherry, oak, sallows and willows, hazel, silver birch, sweet chestnut, alder and lime. (Pratt, 2011)
