A resident species often fairly common near ponds, lakes and dykes. Widespread in the extreme east and west of the county but completely unknown in central Sussex. Single-brooded, flying mainly from early June to late August, occasionally to early September. Larvae feed on bur-reed and yellow water-lily. (Pratt, 2011).
