A resident that usually occurs singly or sparingly but it is occasionally fairly common to common near coastal reed-beds. Very local, and currently chiefly confined to within a few miles of the seashore. In decline. Sometimes double brooded, flying mainly from the third week of June to early August and sometimes again from mid August to the third week of September. Adults have been seen in every week from early June to the third week of September. The Larval foodplant has not been discovered in the wild, although Dandelion and Knotgrass have been utilised in captivity. (Pratt, 2011)
