Nationally Scarce B

The earliest Sussex record for this Nationally Notable moth was noted on the coast near Brighton in 1859. Sightings in 1886 found it very common at Shoreham Shingles. By 1905 the moth was associated with sea pink and abundant. Also discovered at Pett in mid 1870's. Only 20th century encounter in Sussex concerns a single specimen attracted to mv light at the Wader Pool, Rye Harbour early August 1998. Nationally, this species is double-brooded, flying during May and June, and again in August. (Pratt, 2011).
