Status and ecology:

National Status: Common

A resident species whose larvae are often fairly common and sometimes common in parts of the West, although adults are noticeably less frequent away from the Walberton area. Much less numerous in the East but perhaps seriously under-recorded. Double-brooded, flying mainly from late April to mid-June, and again in July and August. Larvae feed on oak and hornbeam. (Pratt, 2011)
