In Great Britain single brooded, on the continent double brooded in Central and Southern parts. More common in high growing herbs and other medium sized plants than in trees. The adults appear in late summer and autumn and overwinter. They are able flyers and may fly great distances to find good places to spend winter in straw or mosses or under loose bark.
