Status and ecology:

Resident. Generally occurs singly or sparingly in a wide range of habitats but it is sometimes fairly common at mv light. Widespread, but very local in numbers. Usually, single-brooded, flying mainly from late May to late July, occasionally from late April or to the third week of August. Indicators of a partial second emergence have also occasionally been recorded. Larvae feed on polar and aspen. (Pratt, 2011)
