National Status: Migrant

Suspected immigrant and temporary resident. Only detected in singletons at mv light. Distinctly episodic in appearance. Double-brooded, flying mainly from late July to late August, occasionally from early June, and again during the last three weeks of September. Larvae were said to feed on wormwood at Eastbourne between the wars, although only mugwort and field wormwood are listed as foodplants elsewhere. (Pratt, 2011).
