Davey, P., 2009: A species known only from coastal sandhill habitat on the Kent and Norfolk coasts, the larva feeding on lichens and algae growing on pebbles, posts and on the ground. In Dorset, there is just a single record, that of a suspected immigrant: Portland, at MV light on 12 August 1994 (M Cade). Abroad, the moth is restricted to coastal habitat in northern Europe, including the countries bordering the Baltic, however, in southern and central Europe it also occurs inland.
