This moth can be easily identified owing to its unique resting posture with the forewings held extended and completely covering the hindwings. Commonly found over much Norfolk and a frequent visitor to my MV Light trap on my wildlife meadow in Norfolk, UK. Occurs in Grassland, heathland, scrub, open woodland Cleavers and Bedstraws and similar habitats.
