Status and ecology:

Resident. Usually occurs sparingly in a wide range of habitats throughout, although it is sometimes fairly common to common along parts of the coast, often so near Rye. Well distributed in the far east, but less so elsewhere. Single-brooded, flying mainly from mid July to late October, although adults have been seen in every week from the second week of June to early November. Larvae have been associated with the roots of dock and hop. (Pratt, 2011)
