A resident species, often fairly common to common, flying by day in woods and sometimes on the downs. Widespread away from the west central region of the county, where it is in decline. High numbers are very local. Single brooded, mainly flying from late April to the third week of June. Larvae feed on wood sage, woundwort and dead-nettle. (Pratt 2011)
