Rivula sericealis Scopoli, 1763 

Distribution

European species ( Shaw 2012).

Notes

It is a small, partly plurivoltine noctuid moth. It is generally occurring in a wide variety of grassy sites, perhaps most commonly in somewhat sheltered situations. The larvae feed on various grasses and it is also recorded from sedges. The adults are long-lived and there is then a succession of at least partial additional generations, such that adults are on flights more or less continuously from late May well into September, with summer generation larvae in various stages of growth from June until the third instar larvae start to enter diapause in the autumn ( Shaw 2012).
