Status and ecology:

Resident and suspected occasional immigrant. Adults are often fairly common to common at mv light in West Sussex woods but are a little less numerous in East Sussex; larvae are sometimes very locally common in both halves of the county. Widespread, and probably generally distributed, but high numbers of adults are local. Usually single-brooded, flying mainly from late June to late August, sometimes to early September. Larvae feed on hawthorn, apple leaves and skins, sloe, rose, hazel, birch, alder buckthorn, and bramble. (Pratt, 2011)
