Resident. In danger of extinction in both vice-counties. The moth usually occurs singly, sometimes sparingly at mv light, near rivers, vegetated shingle beaches, and on salt marshes, within a mile of the coast; sometimes fairly common to common at Rye. Very local and episodic in appearance in many places. In serious decline. Single brooded, flying mainly from mid June to the third week in August. Occasionally from early June or to late August. Larvae feed on unspecified grasses. (Pratt, 2011)
