Resident. The moth normally occurs singly or sparingly at mv light in a wide range of habitats but it is occasionally fairly common along parts of the coast. Widespread, and probably generally distributed in large areas. Single-brooded, flying mainly from mid August to the third week of October, occasionally from the second week of August or to late October. Larvae feed inside the stems of thistle, hemp-agrimony, fleabane, and burdock. (Pratt, 2011)
