Resident. Generally occurs singly in a wide range of habitats, but it is occasionally seen sparingly at mv light in deciduous woods. Thinly distributed across the county, but very irregular in any numbers. Double-brooded, flying mainly from late April to early June and again from mid July to late August, although adults have been seen in every week from the second week of April to late August. Larvae feed on “dwarf sallows” and aspen. (Pratt, 2011)
