Local

Resident. The moth generally occurs singly, occasionally sparingly at mv light, in a wide range of habitats, the Downs and coast being especially favourable. Very local and irregular in appearance. Single and perhaps sometimes double-brooded, flying mainly from the second week of June to the second week of September, occasionally to late October. Larvae are associated with fleabane and ploughman's spikenard. (Pratt, 2011)
