A resident species that usually occurs singly or sparingly at mv light in a wide range of habitats. Occasionally fairly common in many deciduous woods and common in the north-west. Local and distinctly irregular in any numbers, patchily distributed and missing from large areas. This moth is in serious decline. Single brooded; flying from late September to early November and again after intermittent hibernation, from early March to mid April. The larval foodplants have been listed (elsewhere) as hawthorn, sallow and oak. (Pratt, 2011)
