Resident and suspected immigrant. Only known from Horsham in West Sussex and, until 2011 when specimens turned up at Eastbourne (28 June) and Peacehaven (31 July) was undetected in East Sussex since the 1850's (Pratt, 2012). Only known to fly in July in Sussex but is thought to fly in two generations between April and October. Larvae feed on wild and cultivated lettuce, recorded elsewhere on bristly ox-tongue. (Pratt, 2011)
