Nb

A resident species extinct in East Sussex since about 1960 and in danger of extinction in West Sussex, where it can still sometimes be common by day along woodland rides between Arundel and Harting. Adults are on the wing in two broods from late May to late June, and again from early July to mid August. Larvae of this species are associated with wood spurge. (Pratt, 2011)
