Status and ecology:

A resident species sometimes reinforced by migration. Often fairly common and sometimes common at mv light in a wide range of habitats. Occasionally abundant close to the coast. Probably generally distributed. Often double-brooded and perhaps occasionally triple-brooded, flying mainly in two overlapping emergences between late May and early September. A third flight, possibly immigrant-based, is episodic between mid-September and late October. Larvae feed on unidentified grasses. (Pratt, 2011)
