Status and ecology:

A resident species with suspected occasional immigrants. Usually occurs singly or sparingly at mv light in a wide range of habitats, although sometimes fairly common in woodland clearings and on heathery commons. Well distributed away from the chalk but extremely local and very irregular in numbers. Single-brooded, flying mainly from mid-June to early August. Larvae feed on bilberry and heather, and probably other as yet undetermined foodplants. (Pratt, 2011)
