A resident species, usually occurring singly or sparingly, but sometimes quite common at mv lights near chalk cliffs, and on vegetated shingle beaches; occasional singletons penetrate up to five miles inland. Very local with breeding probably confined to within half a mile of the seashore. Single-brooded, flying mainly from mid-June to early August. Larvae feed on dead vegetation. (Pratt, 2011).
