Hi Ian,

You can find some info in Robinson, Tuck & Shaffer, 1994. A guide to the
Smaller Moths of South-East Asia (Natural History Museum, London in assoc. with
the Malayan Nature Society, Kuala Lumpur).

Here in Hong Kong the species is widespread at a fairly low density, except in
Phragmites reedbeds, where it is very abundant for most of the year (March
through to December as a multivoltine adult). The species probably feeds on a
variety of Poaceae.

Hope this helps,
