This resident species usually occurs singly at mv light in a wide range of habitats, but is often seen sparingly or fairly commonly at mv light amongst deciduous woodland and on heaths. Well distributed in the far west and the far east of the county but missing from large areas in between. Local in numbers and in decline. Single-brooded, flying mainly from the second week of June to early August. Larvae feed on dock, birch and honeysuckle. (Pratt, 2011)
