National Status: Common

Resident and suspected occasional immigrant. The moth usually occurs sparingly or fairly commonly at rest and at mv light in a wide range of habitats, but it is sometimes common at Arundel, on the Selsey peninsula and at St Leonards. Probably generally distributed in the south but uncommon in the north. Very local in numbers. Single-brooded, flying mainly from late May to early August, occasionally to early September. Larvae feed inside thistle stems. (Pratt, 2011).
