Probably generally distributed, but very local numbers. Single-brooded, flying mainly from late June to late August, occasionally from the second week of June. An adult was also recorded on September 25th 1957 at Houghton Green (Rye). Larvae feed on Dandelion, Knotgrass, Plantain and Bramble, in other counties. (Pratt, 2011)
