A resident species occurring sparingly or fairly commonly at mv light in a wide range of habitats. Widespread, common to locally common in the north-west and occasionally so elsewhere. Less numerous along the treeless parts of the coast. A single brooded species; flying mainly from late September to late November and again, after intermittent hibernation from early March to late April. The larvae feed on oak, elm and sallow.
