A resident species, usually occurring singly or sparingly at mv light in most places but sometimes very locally common at dusk on damp heathland and marshes. In danger of extinction in the west but increasing in the east. Chiefly single-brooded, flying mainly from late June to late July with an occasional second emergence in September. The larval foodplant in the wild is not known in this country. (Pratt, 2011)
