Notes: Nationally scarce (Nb) on calcareous grassland, quarries, sea cliffs and shingle beaches in parts of England. In Hampshire and on the Isle of Wight it still occurs on the chalk downland of the Island and along the boundary between vice-counties 11 and 12, and also on Portsdown Hill above Portsmouth, but is much less common than formerly. Wingspan 33-40 mm. Distinguished from all other Agrostis species by the dentate ante- and post-median fasciae and inconspicuous stigmata. Larva feeds on Wild Thyme.
