Status and ecology:

A resident and suspected episodic immigrant occurring singly or sparingly throughout and is sometimes fairly common at mv light on pine-clad heathland amongst coniferous plantations. Probably generally distributed, but very local in numbers. Single brooded flying from early May to late August with a possible overlapping second generation occasionally seen in early September. Larvae feed on pine. (Pratt, 2011)
