This resident species usually occurs singly or sparingly in a wide range of habitats but it is occasionally fairly common to common on heathland, in danger in West Sussex. Very local and distinctly irregular in any numbers. Only thinly distributed in the east, with few known recent colonies in the west. Single-brooded flying mainly from the second week of June to early July, occasionally from late May or to mid July. Larvae feed on dandelion and have been recorded on a range of low-growing plants, including heather, elsewhere. (Pratt, 2011)
