Nb

Resident. In East Sussex the moth occurs sparingly at mv light but is sometimes fairly common along parts of the downs and the coast between Peacehaven and the Kent border and especially on the shingle beach at Rye. Very rare in West Sussex and in danger of extinction. Single-brooded, flying mainly from early September to late October. Larval food plant unknown in Sussex but elsewhere feeds on sea campion, wood sage, sorrel and many other plants. (Pratt, 2011)
