Resident. The moth usually occurs singly or sparingly at mv light in a wide range of damp habitats, but it is occasionally fairly common amongst coastal reed-beds. Colonies are well distributed within a few miles of the seashore between Eastbourne and Camber but are much less so elsewhere; in danger of extinction in West Sussex, and in decline throughout. Single-brooded, flyinf mainly from mid July to early September, occasionally from the second week of July or to mid October. Larvae feed inside the stems of wild yellow iris (yellow flag).
