Status and ecology:

National Status: Nationally Scarce B

Resident and suspected immigrant. Usually occurs singly as an immigrant, and sparingly or fairly commonly at mv light as a coastal resident amongst the sand-dunes and on vegetated shingle beaches, especially near Rye. Distinctly episodic in appearance, and very rare in the north. Double-brooded, flying mainly throughout June, and again much more numerously from the second week of July to early September. Adults have been seen in every week from early June to the third week of September. The larval foodplant has yet to be determined in Sussex, although goosefoot has been listed from elsewhere. (Pratt, 2011).
