Status and ecology:

A resident species usually occurring sparingly or fairly commonly near evergreen plantations, but it is sometimes common flying around the tops of conifers by day; occasionally very common at Shaves Wood. Only thinly distributed, and missing from large areas. High numbers are extremely local and distinctly episodic. This species is single-brooded, flying mainly from late May to the third week of July, occasionally from late April or to late July. Larvae feed on Scots pine. (Pratt, 2011)
