Local

A resident species that usually occurs sparingly or fairly commonly by day and at mv light in a few places on the Downs in both vice-counties. It is sometimes common at Wilmington. It is double-brooded, flying chiefly from mid April to mid June and again in August. The larvae feed on the root leaves of salad burnet, wood sage, wild thyme and perhaps on the leaves of Potentilla spp. (Pratt, 2011).
