Resident. The moth usually occurs sparingly, sometimes fairly commonly at mv light, in a wide range of habitats. Probably generally distributed. Single-brooded, flying mainly from late May to mid July, probably occasionally from the third week of May or to mid August. The larval foodplants have not been determined in Sussex but cock’s-foot, reed canary-grass, and other unidentified grasses serve elsewhere. (Pratt, 2011)
