Status and ecology:

A resident species, fairly common to common and occasionally very common to mv light in a wide range of habitats. Probably generally distributed. Double brooded and recently sometimes triple brooded in overlapping flights. Adults are on the wing more or less continuously from mid May to early September and have been seen in every week from early April to early October. Larvae feed on 'mind your own business' and doubtless various other unidentified wild and cultivated plants that have been listed from elsewhere (Pratt, 2011)
