A resident that usually occurs singly or sparingly but is fairly common to common near reed-beds. It is single-brooded, flying mainly from early June to early September, occasionally to the third week of September. The larval foodplants have not be determined in Sussex although common reed, reed sweet-grass and sedges have been recorded elsewhere. (Pratt, 2011).
