Status and ecology:

National Status: Nationally Scarce A

Proposed Red Data Book Class 3. Resident in East Sussex, but only casual recorded in West Sussex. The moth generally occurs singly or sparingly within half a mile of the seashore - vegetated shingle beaches and chalk cliffs being especially favoured - although it is often fairly common at Eastbourne, Normans Bay and Rye. Colonies are almost, or completely, restricted to the coast between Beachy Head and the Kent border. Single-brooded, flying mainly from mid June to mid September. Larvae feed on viper's-bugloss. (Pratt, 2011).
