Nb

A resident species with suspected occasional immigrants. Usually occurs singly or sparingly at mv light in a wide range of habitats, although sometimes fairly common in a few northern districts. Well distributed away from the Downs and western coasts, but extremely local if more than singletons are to be seen. Single-brooded, flying mainly from late June to late August. Larvae feed on unidentified bracket fungi. (Pratt, 2011)
