Noctuidae

2091 Dark Sword-grass, Agrotis ipsilon (Hufnagel, 1766)

Status and ecology:

An annual immigrant and suspected occasional temporary resident. It occurs sparingly at mv light in most places, occasionally common near the coast. Adults have been seen from early February to early December, but fly most numerously from mid July to late October. Larval foodplants have not been recorded in Sussex, though the roots and leaves of many different unidentified wild and cultivated plants have been mentioned elsewhere. (Pratt, 2011)
