A resident species. Larvae are often fairly common and occasionally common in deciduous woods in West Sussex; apparently very rare in East Sussex, but perhaps under recorded in both vice-counties. Adults are sometimes common at Petworth. Double-brooded, flying mainly during May and August, although this yet to be confirmed in Sussex. Larvae feed on birch. (Pratt, 2011)
