This is a local and nationally scarce species, with scattered colonies found nationally in damp areas, where the larval foodplant Yellow Loosestrife grows. The Sussex record is completely post-Millenial, with records from Dormer's Wood (Crawley Down), East Grinstead and Burton Mill Pond in West Sussex, and at Powdermill Road in East Sussex. These records relate to adults which have visited mv light during the month of July or larvae discovered on the foodplant during searches in August and September. (Pratt, 2011)
