A resident species, this moth usually occurs singly or sparingly in a wide rang of habitats, but is often fairly common and sometimes locally common at mv light in damp deciduous woodland. Widespread and perhaps generally distributed. A single brooded species, flying mainly from early September to late October. The larvae feed at first on sallow catkins, latter on sallow leaves and finally on low-growing plants. (Pratt, 2011)
