Status and ecology:

This resident species usually occurs sparingly or fairly commonly in a wide range of habitats, but can be common on the downs and along parts of the coast. Widespread but patchily distributed and high numbers are local. Generally single-brooded flying mainly from mid May to late July. A partial second emergence occasionally flies from early August to mid September. Larvae feed on dandelion, the hawkweeds, and hawk's-beard. (Pratt, 2011)
