A resident that usually occurs sparingly but it is sometimes fairly common and occasionally common at mv light along the coast and downs to the east of Shoreham; rare elsewhere. Very local in numbers, and declining. Double-brooded, flying in overlapping emergences, the second of which is always the most numerous, mainly between late May and late September. Adults have been seen in every week from early May to early October. Larvae feed on Cinquefoil and Yarrow. (Pratt, 2011)
