Resident. The moth usually occurs singly or sparingly but is sometimes fairly common at mv light in a wide range of habitats; often more numerous in West Sussex, where it is occasionally locally common or even very common amongst deciduous woodland at Petworth. Well distributed away from central areas, where colonies are scarce. Single-brooded, flying mainly from late June to mid August, occasionally from early June or to the third week of August. Larvae feed on unspecified grasses. (Pratt, 2011)
