Status and ecology:

National Status: Common

A resident species that is widespread and perhaps generally distributed, but distinctly episodic in high numbers. It is sometimes common to very common to mv light or when disturbed during the day in grassy places. It is single-brooded, flying mainly from early July to mid September, sometimes from early June and occasionally to the third week of September. The larvae feed at the base of unspecified grass stems but this has yet to be confirmed in Sussex. (Pratt, 2011).
