A suspected immigrant usually occurring singly at mv light across the region, and increasing episodic resident in the east where it can be common at mv light to the east of Eastbourne. In the west establishment has yet to be proven. Double-brooded, flying mainly during the latter half of May and more numerously from mid-July to late September. Larvae feed on common reed, reed canary-grass and greater pond sedge, in more open situations on creeping bent and in their later stages in captivity on grey willow. (Pratt, 2011)
