A resident species in decline; usually seen singly, or sparingly at mv light in a range of habitats, but occasionally fairly common on the Downs. Widespread but only very thinly distributed. Very local and irregular in any numbers. Generally single-brooded, flying mainly from late May to mid-July with only one record of a September emergence in the region. Larvae feed on the seed-pods of bladder campion and sweet william. (Pratt, 2011)
