Local

Nationally Notable Class B. Resident and suspected immigrant. The moth usually occurs singly or sparingly, although it is sometimes fairly common near waste ground in East Sussex. Very local, distinctly episodic in appearance in most places, and generally restricted to within seven miles of the coast. This species is single-brooded flying mainly from mid July to late September, sometimes from the second week of June. Larvae feed on the seed-heads of unspecified species of cruciferous plants, including perennial wall-rocket and on charlock and white mustard. (Pratt, 2011).
