Local

Resident. Occurs sparingly at light in a wide range of habitats. Very irregular in appearance and chiefly confined to southern Sussex. Single-brooded, flying mainly from late June to early August. Larvae feed on chaff, hay-refuse, and sheep's dung but none of this has been confirmed in Sussex. (Pratt, 2011).
