A resident species that is episodic in appearance. The moth generally occurs sparingly at mv light in a very few places across the county although sometimes common at dusk at Rewell Wood. It is single-brooded, flying mainly from late June to mid September, occasionally to early October. The larvae are said to feed on the roots of corn woundwort and mint. (Pratt, 2011).
