Common

A resident that is widespread in West Sussex and in the far east but colonies are scarce elsewhere. The moth generally occurs sparingly or fairly commonly in grassy places. It is single-brooded, flying mainly from mid July to late September, occasionally from the second week of June. The larvae are associated with unspecified course grasses. (Pratt, 2011).
