Recent Status: Frequent across Suffolk.

Life Style: Single brooded flying by day and night and coming to light from May to September. The larvae feed on the seeds and stems of Senecio jacobaea. They pass the winter in a cocoon on the ground where they pupate.

Identification: A strikingly marked white moth. There are small black marks and an ocellus with black dashes. The markings are brown at the apex and pre-ocellus.
