Status and ecology:

A resident species, normally occurring singly or sparingly in a wide range of habitats but sometimes fairly common at mv light in woods and along parts of the coast. Very local and irregular in any numbers. Well distributed but apparently missing from much of the west of the region. Chiefly single-brooded, flying mainly from mid-May to mid-August, with a sporadic partial second emergence between mid-September and late October. Larvae feed on sallow, unspecified low-growing plants and "ferns". (Pratt, 2011)
