Resident. Males are normally seen singly or sparingly by day and at mv light, but they are occasionally common in a wide range of habitats flying in sunshine when searching for females. Widespread, and generally distributed in some districts, but extremely local and distinctly episodic if more then singletons are to be seen. Apparently single-brooded, males flying mainly from mid June to mid November. Larvae feed on a wide variety of trees and bushes. (Pratt, 2011)
