Nb

This resident species normally occurs singly or sparingly at mv light but it is occasionally fairly common in a wide range of habitats. Probably generally distributed, but extremely local and episodic in any numbers. Usually single-brooded, flying mainly from late June to mid August, occasionally from early June or to the third week in August. Since 1995 there have been partial second emergences, sporadically occurring between the second week of September and the second week of October. Larvae feed on dewberry and raspberry. (Pratt, 2011)
