Status and ecology:

A resident species occurring sparingly in a wide range of habitats but some times common along the coast. Probably generally distributed, but very local and episodic in numbers. Single brooded flying mainly from mid July to the third week of August, occasionally from late June or to early September. The larval foodplants have not been recorded in Sussex although various unidentified grasses and herbaceous plants have been mentioned elsewhere. (Pratt, 2011)
