National Status: pRDB3

Nationally Notable Class B. A resident species in danger of extinction in East Sussex and only recently known from Eastbourne; presumed extinct in West Sussex since its last listing in 1905. Perhaps seriously under recorded in both vice-counties. Double brooded, flying mainly during May and August, though this has yet to be confirmed in Sussex. Larvae feed in the leaves of dropwort. (Pratt, 2011)
