A resident species, although widespread it can be extremely local in numbers. It is often fairly common along grassy rides in woodland clearings and sometimes on vegetated shingle ridges. It is single-brooded, flying mainly from late May to late July, sometimes to early September. The larvae feed on grasses, especially Poa spp. (Pratt, 2011).
