Nb

This moth appears singly or sparingly at mv light near Heathland. Although it is considered to be in danger of extinction in East Sussex, it is more widespread in West Sussex and can sometimes be common in Midhurst. Nevertheless, it is extremely localised and episodic in numbers. It is a single-brooded species, flying mainly from late June until the third week of July. Larvae feed on Bilberry. (Pratt, 2011)
