Status and ecology:

A resident species often fairly common and sometimes common along the coast especially at tungsten, neon and mv light. Generally less frequent inland. Well distributed but local in numbers. Although nationally stated to be single-brooded, within the region fresh specimens fly most numerously in two distinct peaks, timed during the first half of June and again from early August to mid-September. Larvae feed on the roots of various plants including bracken, burdock and viper's bugloss. (Pratt, 2011)
