History
There are just three records: first was on 20th June 1896 at Corsemalzie, Wigtownshire, with the second there on 12th June 1897. Thirdly, on 19th June 1906, it was found near the Golf Course at Glenluce.
 
As this area has received quite a bit of trapping since, it would appear to be extinct in Dumfries & Galloway.
 
Life cycle
One generation. Overwinters as a pupa underground. Larvae are present June to July.
 
Larval foodplants
Common Restharrow, Ribwort Plantain, Sand Spurrey, Sea Rocket and Sea Sandwort.
 
Identification
The white comma or colon-shaped mark on the lower end of the kidney-mark on grainy textured forewings should separate it from other noctuids.
 
Habitat
Vegetated sand-dunes, shingle and marshes at the coast; also, on inland heathland.
 
Recorders' notes
Specimen or quality photo required for record acceptance.
