Resident, often fairly common to common and sometimes very common at mv light along the coastal strip, especially in gardens and on vegetated shingle beaches. Much less frequent inland, and probably generally distributed. Usually single-brooded flying mainly from mid June to mid August, with an occasional second emergence from late August to late October. Larvae feed on a wide variety of plants including bindweed, bracken, primrose, plantain and dock. (Pratt, 2011)
