Common

Resident. Usually occurs singly or sparingly at mv light in both vice-counties, although it is occasionally fairly common by day and night on the downs. Widespread, but very local in numbers. Single-brooded, flying mainly from late May to mid August. Larvae are said to feed on sheep's fescue, and other allied species of grass. (Pratt,2011)
