Recent Status: One of Suffolk’s most abundant species of moth.

Life Style: A single or double brooded species that comes to light. It can be found from May to September. The larvae feed from spinnings on a wide range of herbaceous and woody plants and shrubs. They pupate in a cocoon on the ground.
