Davey, P., 2009: A widespread but local species in Britain, the larva is polyphagous on withered leaves of herbaceous plants such as stitchwort (Stellaria spp.) and bilberry (Vaccinium myrtillus). In Dorset, the moth is restricted to sandy soils where it colonises deciduous birch and/or oak woodland and scrub. This species resembles the Riband Wave1713, and care is needed to correctly identify it.
