A resident species, often fairly common to common at mv light in eastern woods, and locally common to very common in parts of the west, but much less so along treeless parts of the coast. Probably generally distributed. Single-brooded, flying mainly from late June to early September. Larvae feed on a wide range of deciduous trees and shrubs and on lepidopterous larvae. (Pratt, 2011)
