A resident species which generally occurs singly or sparingly at mv light in a wide range of habitats, but can be fairly common along parts of the coast and common near Crawley. Widespread but missing from large areas. Very local and in decline. Single-brooded flying mainly from late June to late August. Larvae feed on dock, stinging nettle, woundwort, dog's mercury, honeysuckle, wood anemone and garden plants such as lilac, geranium, polyanthus and lemon verbena. (Pratt, 2011)
