Status and ecology:

Resident. The moth usually occurs sparingly or fairly commonly at mv light in a wide range of grassy habitats but it is occasionally common along parts of the coast, especially on shingle beaches. High numbers are very local and irregular. Widespread. Single-brooded, flying most numerously from early July to late August, sometimes from mid June and occasionally from late May. Various wild grasses and cultivated cereal crops have been listed from other counties, but only lyme grass has been reported here. (Pratt, 2011)
