Resident. Usually occurs sparingly at mv light in both vice-counties but it is occasionally fairly common to common on parts of the Downs and coast. Very irregular in high numbers but increasing. Single-brooded, flying mainly from the second week of June to mid September, occasionally from late May or to late September. Larvae feed on the roots of perennial sow-thistle and dandelion.
