Noctuidae

2349 Mere Wainscot, Chortodes fluxa (Hübner, 1809)

Status and ecology:

National Status: Nb

Resident. The moth usually occurs singly or sparingly at mv light, although it is sometimes fairly common near reed-beds and on vegetated shingle beaches at Rye and Pagham. Very local, distinctly episodic in appearance, and only found within the sound of the surf. Single-brooded, flying mainly from late June to late August. Larvae have not been discovered in Sussex but wood small-reed is the listed foodplant elsewhere. (Pratt, 2011)
