A resident species occurring singly or sparingly, though sometimes fairly common to common at mv light in open habitats in both vice-counties. Larvae are more numerous than the resultant adults. Single-brooded, flying mainly from late June to mid August, occasionally to early September. Larvae feed on the leaves of sloe and hawthorn. (Pratt, 2011).
