Nationally Scarce B

Nationally Notable Class B. Resident. In danger of extinction in both vice-counties. The moth usually occurs singly or sparingly at mv light in a very few deciduous woodlands although vegetated shingle beaches also used to be favoured. Scarce. This species is single-brooded flying mainly from the second week of June to the third week of July, occasionally to early September. The larval foodplant has yet to be determined in Sussex, although unspecified lichens and mosses have been listed elsewhere. (Pratt, 2011).
