Resident. Usually occurs singly at mv light in waste places, sometimes sparingly, but it is occasionally fairly common on the vegetated shingle beach at Rye. Chiefly distributed in central districts and in the extreme south-eastern and south western corners of the county. Very local, irregular in numbers and in decline. Single-brooded, flying mainly from late June to late August, occasionally from early June. Larvae feed on the seed heads of orache and goosefoot. (Pratt, 2011).
