A resident species, usually occurring singly, occasionally sparingly, by day in woodland glades and clearings, along sheltered rides and roadsides, on heathery commons, and especially between rows of young pines. Very local, and currently entirely restricted to sites between Chailey and Golden Cross, and to Kingspark Wood. Increasing. Double -brooded, flying mainly from mid-May to mid-June, then again from late July to mid-September. Larvae feed on golden rod. (Pratt, 2011).
