A resident species, whose larvae are often common in deciduous woods and shrubby places; adults are much less frequent at mv light. Colonies are apparently less frequent in the East. Double-brooded, flying mainly from early April to late June, and again from mid-August to late September. Larvae feed on hazel. (Pratt, 2011)
