A resident species in decline, usually occurring singly or sparingly at mv light in a wide range of habitats. Sometimes fairly common on the Downs and along parts of the coast. Widespread but local and distinctly episodic in any numbers. Double-brooded, flying mainly in two overlapping emergences between mid-May and late August. Larvae feed on the seeds of a range of Lychnis spp., ragged robin and campion. (Pratt, 2011)
