Status and ecology:

A resident that is usually seen singly at mv light but it occasionally occurs sparingly on and near the chalk between Lewes and Selsey Peninsula; in danger of extinction in East Sussex. Only thinly distributed, and in decline. Apparently single-brooded, flying mainly from early July to the third week of August, although adults have been seen during every week from the third week of June to early September. Larvae feed on Hedge Bedstraw and Lady's Bedstraw. (Pratt, 2011)
