A widespread resident although scarce in the far west. The moth usually occurs singly or sparingly at mv light in both vice-counties, although it is sometimes fairly common to common in a few places. It is double-brooded, flying mainly from late April to the third week of June, and again from the second week of July to late August, sometimes to mid September. The larvae feed on bird's-foot trefoil and various species of vetch including meadow vetchling. (Pratt, 2011).
