Common

A resident species, whose larvae generally occur sparingly or fairly commonly but are sometimes common in large areas of deciduous woodland. Double-brooded, flying mainly from late May to mid-June and again from late July to late September. Larvae feed on silver birch and downy birch. (Pratt, 2011)
