Resident. The moth usually occurs singly or sparingly in a wide range of habitats but is occasionally fairly common at mv light in woods. Very local and irregular in numbers. Widespread, but disappearing from the north-west. In decline. Single-brooded, flying mainly from late May to mid July, occasionally from the third week of May or to early August. The larval foodplants have not been recorded from Sussex but various unidentified grasses have been listed from elsewhere. (Pratt, 2011)
