A resident and suspected immigrant, last recorded in East Sussex in 1987 and possibly extinct here. The moth usually occurs sparingly or fairly commonly at mv light on West Sussex heathland. It is thought to be single-brooded, flying mainly from mid August to early September. The larval foodplant is not known. (Pratt, 2011).
