This resident species usually occurs singly or sparingly amongst dykes and in marshes, chiefly within four miles of the coast. It is fairly common in the extreme south-west of the county. Very local. Double-brooded flying mainly from mid May to early July and again from late July to late August. The larval foodplants are dock, plantain and various other herbaceous plants. (Pratt, 2011)
