Resident. Generally occurs singly or sparingly in a wide range of habitats but it is occasionally locally fairly common in damp woods and marshes, especially in the north-west. Widespread. Single-brooded, flying mainly from mid June to early August, occasionally from late May or to mid August. The larval foodplant has not been recorded in Sussex but caterpillars feed in the stems of tufted hair-grass elsewhere. (Pratt, 2011)
