A resident species, in danger of extinction in both vice-counties. Usually occurs sparingly by day in most places, although occasionally common at Heyshott. Chiefly confined to a few downland habitats in the West and to the coast in the East. Single-brooded, flying mainly from late June to late August. Larvae feed on knapweed. (Pratt, 2011).
