A resident species in decline usually occurring singly or sparingly at mv light but occasionally fairly common in woods. Only thinly distributed in the far west and south-east and very local and distinctly episodic in appearance in many places. Single-brooded, flying mainly from late June to early September. The larval foodplant in the wild is not known in this country. (Pratt, 2011)
