Resident. Often fairly common to common and occasionally very common at mv light amongst deciduous woodland. Generally distributed in large areas but perhaps disappearing from some. High numbers are very local. Single-brooded, flying mainly from mid July to early September, occasionally from early July or to late September. Larvae usually feed on oak, although beech is sometimes utilised, (Pratt, 2011)
