Status and ecology:

Resident. The moth often occurs singly or sparingly in a wide range of habitats, is often fairly common to common in woods, and is occasionally very common at mv light at Friston Forest. Widespread, and probably generally distributed, but very local in any real numbers. Single-brooded, flying mainly from early May to late July, most numerously to late June, and occasionally from mid April or to mid August. Larvae feed on unidentified lichens growing on trees and bushes of oak and beech. (Pratt, 2011)
