Resident, In danger of extinction in both vice-counties. The moth usually occurs singly or sparingly at mv light in a very few places on the downs, although it is occasionally fairly common at Fairmile Bottom. Single brooded flying chiefly from late May to late June. Larval foodplants were thought to be most probably knapweed and bedstraw. (Pratt, 2011)
