A resident that is often fairly common and occasionally common at mv light in domestic gardens situated along the coast, although it is usually less frequent inland. Widespread, but missing from large areas and numbers are very local. Double-brooded, flying mainly from the second week of June to early August and again from late August to late September. However, adults have been seen in every week from the third week of May to late October; also seen on May 2nd 2007 at Lewes. Larvae feed on Dandelion. (Pratt, 2011)
