Resident. Adults are often common and sometimes very common at mv light along parts of the coast, much lower levels generally being found inland; larvae are episodically abundant within a mile of the seashore but are extremely local in high densities. Probably generally distributed along the coastal strip, but only patchily found inland. Local and distinctly episodic in elevated numbers. Single-brooded, flying mainly from early July to mid August, sometimes to late August. Larvae feed on a wide variety of trees and bushes. (Pratt, 2011)
