Common

A resident species generally occurring sparingly but it is sometimes fairly common to common in a wide range of habitats, vegetated shingle beaches being especially favoured. Widespread but missing from large areas. This species is single-brooded flying mainly from early June to late August, occasionally to early September. Larvae feed on the roots of yellow succory (hawkweed ox-tongue) and coltsfoot. (Pratt, 2011).
