Common

A resident species, often occurring sparingly or fairly commonly at mv light in both vice-counties, and occasionally locally common. However, high numbers are irregular and localised to deciduous woodland. Widely distributed but positively scarce along treeless parts of the coast. Single-brooded, flying mainly from early March to late April. Larvae feed on a wide variety of deciduous trees. (Pratt, 2011)
