Davey, P., 2009: A species found in reedbeds throughout Britain, the larva feeding in the lower stems and roots of common reed (Phragmites australis). In Dorset, the moth is common within all the larger reedbeds, frequent in the smaller reedbeds along the coast and inland fens, and scattered in wetland situations elsewhere inland. The moth is prone to wandering and has occasionally been trapped some distance from suitable habitat. It has a prolonged flight period.
