Norfolk status
Dry, open and grassy areas.

Large specimens may be confused with E. cana but can be distinguished by the darker ground colour.

Found in rough grassland, especially on the coast and on chalk downs, waysides, embankments and margins of woods.

Pale specimens, especially ​if found in proximity to the larval foodplant Greater Knapweed, should be considered as candidates for Eucosma fulvana (see species)
