Resident species, usually occurring singly or sparingly at mv light but occasionally fairly common along parts of the downs and coast. Very local, irregular in appearance and in serious decline. Single-brooded, flying mainly from late May to mid-June, occasionally to early July. Larvae feed on the seed capsules of bladder campion and sea campion. (Pratt, 2011).
