A resident that generally occurs singly or sparingly by day in a few places in East Sussex, although it is sometimes fairly common at its only know western colony at Rewell Wood. It is single-brooded, flying mainly from late May to late July. The larvae feed on the roots and stems of coltsfoot and possibly on winter heliotrope. (Pratt, 2011).
