Status and ecology:

An occasionally fairly common to common moth of woods and bushy places which visits mv light in small numbers. This is a double-brooded species which flies from late-April to mid-June and again throughout July. Distribution is wide but local and appears to be increasing, although numbers can be episodic. Larvae feed on the leaves of Oak and Hawthorn, and on the flowers of evergreen oak. (Pratt, 2011)
