Status and ecology:

Resident. The moth usually occurs sparingly or fairly commonly in most inland deciduous woods, and it is sometimes common at mv light in our foremost oak woods, rare along treeless parts of coast. Widespread, but very local in numbers. Single-brooded, flying mainly from early October to mid November, occasionally from late August or to the third week of November. Larvae feed on oak.
