A resident species, this moth usually occurs singly or sparingly in a wide rang of habitats, but is sometimes locally fairly common at mv light in deciduous woodland. Only thinly distributed and in decline. A single brooded species, flying mainly from the second week of September to late October. The larvae feed firstly on the catkins of sallow and then move on to the leaves of other (unspecified ) low growing plants. (Pratt, 2011)
