Fairly common and widespread over most of Norfolk. However, not a common visitor to my MV Light trap on my wildlife meadow in Norfolk, UK. This species is on the wing in June and July, slightly earlier than its close relative, the Plain Golden Y (Autographa jota). The larvae, which feed on low plants, overwinter in this stage and pupate in May or June.
The species inhabits gardens, waste ground, and woodland areas.
