Status and ecology:

This resident species usually occurs singly at mv light, sometimes sparingly in woods. Widespread, but very local in any numbers. Generally single brooded, flying from late June to the third week of July. However after hot summers a partial second emergence can occur from late August to late September. Larvae chiefly feed on honeysuckle and wild privet. (Pratt 2011)
