Status and ecology:

Resident. Often common or even very common at mv light in a wide range of grassy habitats along parts of the coast, but less frequent elsewhere and surprisingly scarce on Ashdown Forest. Well distributed, probably generally so. Single-brooded, flying most numerously from late July to early October, although adults have been seen in every week from late June to mid October. The larval foodplants have not been recorded in Sussex but various wild grasses and cultivated cereals have been listed from elsewhere. (Pratt, 2011)
