These attractive moths resemble a shrivelled leaf when resting, and are most commonly encountered during the winter when they can be found hibernating on the ceilings of dark outhouses, porches, cellars and caves. The adults are on the wing from late July to November and again after hibernation from March to June. In the autumn they visit ivy blossom and ripe blackberries, as well as being attracted to light.
