Resident species in danger of extinction across the region. Sometimes fairly common to common by day on heathland and in a few woodland clearings. Extremely local and very episodic in numbers in woodland localities. Single-brooded flying mainly from early June to early July. Larvae feed on heather, heath, broom and the flowers of gorse.
