General comments:
Ubiquitous.

During July, this can be the most numerous species in garden light traps, but this is rarely the case elsewhere, suggesting strongly that garden plants may provide an important larval food resource. Care should be taken by beginners in separating this species from Rustic, which can be confusingly similar.

Recorded in 38 (93%) of 41 10k Squares.
First Recorded in 1887.
