Nationally Scarce B

A Nationally Notable B moth that could now be extinct in Sussex. It is undetected in East Sussex since 1981 and in the west since 1992. It is single-brooded, flying mainly from late June to the second week of August. The larvae feed on grasses, common cotton grass and carnation sedge, where situated amongst sphagnum moss in other counties, but none of this has been confirmed here. (Pratt, 2011).
