A resident species often fairly common to common in woods, but much less frequent elsewhere. Well distributed, but very local in numbers. Single brooded, flying mainly from mid May to late August, occasionally from the second week of May or to late September. Larvae feed on dock, nettle, and honeysuckle. (Pratt, 2011)
