A resident species which usually occurs singly or sparingly at mv light but it is sometimes fairly common in a wide range of habitats. Thinly distributed in the county, but any numbers are local. Normally single-brooded, flying mainly from late June to early August, occasionally from the second week of June or to mid August. Partial second emergences sporadically occur, chiefly between early September and the third week of October. Larvae feed on hawthorn and sloe. (Pratt, 2011)
