2201 Shore Wainscot, Mythimna litoralis (Curtis, 1827)

Status and ecology:

National Status: Nb

A species which is resident but in danger of extinction in both vice-counties. Often fairly common and sometimes common at mv light amongst sand dunes and occasionally very common at Camber. Extremely local but distinctly irregular in high numbers, with only three strong colonies - at Camber in the east, and Climping and West Wittering in the west. Usually single-brooded, flying mainly from mid-June to late July with a partial second emergence sometimes occurring between mid-September and mid-October. Larvae feed on marram grass. (Pratt, 2011)
