A resident and common species throughout, and very common and occasionally abundant to mv light along the coast. Generally distributed. Generally single brooded, flying mainly from late May to mid August. A weaker second flight sometimes appears between mid August and the third week of October, encompassing a second and maybe third emergence. Larval foodplants have not been recorded in Sussex but a wide variety of unidentified wild and garden plants have served elsewhere. (Pratt, 2011)
