Resident species completely unknown in much of the region. Where found it is often fairly common and occasionally common on shingle beaches and in a few places on the eastern Downs but generally only encountered singly elsewhere in the west. Double-brooded, the first flying mainly from mid-May to late June with the second more numerous from mid-August to late September. Larvae feed on wild carrot, hawk's-beard and plantain.
