A resident that is often fairly common to common in a wide range of habitats, and sometimes very common to mv light in woods. Probably generally distributed. Normally single-brooded, flying most numerously from late June to late August, sometimes from late May. A partial second emergence occasionally appears, chiefly from late August to late September, sometimes to late October, as in 1990, 1995, 2006, and 2010. Adults have been seen in every week from late May to late October. Larvae feed on Bedstraw and Chickweed. (Pratt, 2011)
