Common

A resident species that generally occurs singly or sparingly to mv light but has a widespread distribution. It is double-brooded and flies mainly from the second week of May to mid June and again more numerously from late July to late August. The larvae feed on the flowers and seed-heads of yarrow. (Pratt, 2011).
