Resident. The moth usually occurs singly at mv light, occasionally sparingly in both vice-counties, although fairly common at Walberton. Increasing but apparently missing from central Sussex. Single-brooded, flying mainly from the second week of June to early August. Larvae feed on buds of hazel although to be confirmed in Sussex. (Pratt, 2011).
