Nb

A resident species in danger of extinction in Sussex. Usually occurs sparingly or fairly commonly in the south-western corner of Sussex, but is sometimes common at mv light amongst the sand-dunes at Camber. Extremely local in numbers. Single brooded, flying from early June to early August, occasionally late May to mid August. Larvae feed on orache and sea-purslane. (Pratt, 2011)
