Noctuidae

2338 Rufous Minor, Oligia versicolor (Borkhausen, 1792)

Status and ecology:

Resident. The moth usually occurs sparingly in a wide range of habitats, but is sometimes fairly common to common at mv light along parts of the coast. Probably generally distributed. Single-brooded, flying mainly from mid June to mid July, occasionally from the second week of May or to early August. Larvae feed inside the stems of cock’s-foot, and probably other grasses, although this has yet to be determined in Sussex. (Pratt, 2011)
