Davey, P., 2009: A species with a scattered distribution around southern and western coasts of Britain plus a colony on the North Downs of Surrey, the larva feeding on the black and orange lichens growing on pebbles and rocks. In Dorset, there is just one very old record: Lulworth, (Reverend O Pickard-Cambridge). This is a species that just might be present somewhere along the eighteen mile length of pebble banks comprising Chesil Beach, a similar shingle habitat to that where the moth is found in Hampshire, Hurst Beach.
