Resident. The moth usually occurs sparingly in a wide range of habitats but is episodically fairly common to common at mv light along some parts of the coast, especially on shingle beaches, and less regularly so on heathland. Well distributed. Single-brooded, flying mainly from early June to early August, occasionally from late May or to late August. The larval foodplants have not been recorded in Sussex but the seeds and leaves of various unidentified grasses have been mentioned elsewhere. (Pratt, 2011)
