A declining resident species occurring sparingly at mv light, especially near the coast. Occasionally common in sheltered spots on the Downs and on vegetated shingle beaches. Extremely local in numbers. Double-brooded, flying mainly from early April to late May and again from late June to the third week of August. Larvae feed on traveller's joy and cultivated garden clematis. (Pratt, 2011)
