A resident species in decline, usually occurring sparingly in a wide range of habitats, but sometimes locally fairly common to common along parts of the coast and in inland towns. Well-distributed away from the north-west. Single-brooded, flying mainly from mid-June to mid-September. Larvae feed on unidentified lichens growing on old walls and on the roofs of houses.
