A resident species that usually occurs singly or sparingly in a wide range of habitats, but is sometimes locally fairly common and occasionally locally common at mv light among deciduous woodland and heathland; always scarce along treeless parts of the coast. Well distributed, except for central parts and very irregular in numbers. A single brooded species mainly flying from late May to mid August. The larvae feed on birch, alder and aspen. (Pratt, 2011)
