A resident species, generally occurring singly or sparingly at mv light in a few deciduous woods in both vice-counties but sometimes fairly common at Plaistow. Only found in very small numbers in recent times. Single-brooded, flying mainly from mid-October to mid-November. Larvae are speculated to feed on beech, although elsewhere the foodplant is believed to be restricted to oak and bilberry. (Pratt, 2011)
