Noctuidae

2350 Small Wainscot, Chortodes pygmina (Haworth, 1809)

Status and ecology:

Resident. The moth usually occurs singly or sparingly in marshy places but it is often very locally fairly common to common at mv light along the coast between Pevensey and Rye, less often so at Pagham. Well distributed in the far east and extreme west but missing from a large part of central Sussex. Single-brooded, flying mainly from mid July to late September, occasionally from early July or to early October. Larvae feed in the lower part of the flowering stems of sedges and on marram-grass.
