Status and ecology:

A resident species, often fairly common to common at mv light in a wide range of habitats, occasionally very common in woods. Less common along treeless parts of the coast and probably generally distributed. Though much has been written about the life cycle of this species in this county it is observed as a double brooded, flying from late April to mid July and then again from early August to early October. The larvae feed on hawthorn, apple, plum, hazel and sloe.(Pratt 2011)
