Resident. The moth usually occurs sparingly or fairly commonly at mv light in a wide range of habitats, especially along the coast, and it is sometimes locally common at Rogate and Peacehaven. Well distributed. Single-brooded, flying mainly from late May to mid August, occasionally to the third week of August. The larval foodplants have not been determined in Sussex but various unidentified grasses have been mentioned elsewhere. (Pratt, 2011)
