This moth is an autumnal species, flying in September and October. The species is quite variable with many different forms. Commonly found in Norfolk and a frequent visitor to my MV Light trap on my wildlife meadow in Norfolk, UK. The larvae feed on low plants when small, later consuming the leaves of various trees and shrubs.
