Status and ecology:

A resident species whose numbers are reinforced by immigration. Moths of this species generally occur as singletons amongst deciduous woodland at mv light, although they can be sometimes fairly common in Friston Forest. Other than this location, only the Fairlight and Icklesham districts have produced regular records during the past two decades. Adults are on the wing in a single brood mainly from late June until late August. The larval foodplant is elm. (Pratt, 2011)
