Resident. Often occurs sparingly or fairly commonly but it is sometimes common or even very common at mv light on the downs and vegetated shingle beaches; much less frequent elsewhere. Generally distributed on the eastern chalk, and widespread in the remainder of the county, but high numbers are local and irregular. Single-brooded, flying mainly from early July to the third week of August, occasionally from the third week of June or to the same week of September. Larvae feed on (the flowers and seeds of) false oat-grass, cock’s-foot and spear thistle. (Pratt, 2011)
