Status and ecology:

Resident. The moth usually occurs sparingly or fairly commonly at mv light, but is sometimes common on heaths and in woods; scarce along treeless parts of the coast. Generally distributed in large areas, but high numbers are very local. Normally single-brooded, flying mainly from the third week of June to the same week in August, occasionally from the second week of June or to early September. A partial second emergence has taken place during recent years, this dating from late September to late October. Larval foodplants have not been recorded in Sussex, but peltigera canina and other unidentified lichens, growing on trees are mentioned elsewhere. (Pratt, 2011)
