A widespread and probably generally distributed moth. Locally it can be episodic in high numbers. It is often fairly common and sometimes very common at mv light in grassy places. It is single-brooded, flying mainly from late May to late July, occasionally from early May or to mid August. The larval foodplant has yet to be determined in Sussex but elsewhere it has been recorded in unspecified grasses. (Pratt, 2011).
