Nationally Scarce B

A resident, Nationally Notable Class B species. Apparently in danger of extinction in both vice-counties, but perhaps seriously under recorded; sometimes common at Pagham. Single-brooded, flying mainly during July and early August. Larvae feed on the seeds and lower leaves of devil's-bit scabious. (Pratt, 2011)
