Status and ecology:

This resident species is often fairly common and sometimes common at mv light on vegetated shingle beaches and amongst sand dunes, less regularly so on heathland, the moth only occurs singly or sparingly elsewhere. Only thinly distributed away from the coast, and very locally in any numbers. Single-brooded, flying mainly from late June to early September, occasionally from the second week of June or to late September. Larval foodplants are likely to be small unspecified herbaceous plants as these are listed for outside of Sussex. (Pratt, 2011)
