Immigrant and episodic resident. As immigrant the moth usually occurs within four miles of the coast, and where established it is very local and episodic in appearance. Regularly seen since 1983, perhaps permanently established between 2000 and 2008. The number of broods is uncertain. The moth appears mainly between early September and late October with a strong bias towards early September and the last tree weeks of October. Larvae feed on unspecified grasses. (Pratt, 2011)
