This resident species usually occurs sparingly in a wide range of habitats but is sometimes fairly common on parts of the Downs and along the coast. Widespread but very local and irregular in numbers. Generally single-brooded flying from mid June to late July. Late-fliers from this emergence are sometimes over-lapped by the start of a second brood in late August. Adults have been seen in every week from early May to late September. Larvae feed on unspecified low-growing plants. (Pratt, 2011)
