Noctuidae

2085 Archer's Dart, Agrotis vestigialis (Hufnagel, 1766)

Status and ecology:

This resident species is in danger of extinction in both vice-counties. Sometimes fairly common to common at mv light amongst sand dunes and on vegetated shingle beaches in both halves of the county, but rare on West Sussex heathland. Very local in numbers and entirely restricted to the eastern and western extremities of the county. Single-brooded flying mainly from early July to mid September. The larval foodplants have not been recorded in Sussex but a whole range of unspecified grasses and low-growing plants have been listed from elsewhere. (Pratt, 2011)
