Resident is usually seen singly, occasionally sparingly by day on the downs, although larvae are sometimes quite common. In danger of extinction in East Sussex and only recently known from Lewis. Very local distinctly episodic in appearance and undetected in both vice-counties since 1997- but probably under-recorded. Single-brooded flying mainly in July. Larvae feed on the seed pods of nettle-leaved bell flower. (Pratt,2011).
