All Sussex records have been made in just one area, to the west and north of Rye Harbour village. This species was first discovered when an adult was caught flying near viper's bugloss at Rye in 1985. More were seen in flight under similar circumstances in June 1986, and larvae were then found feeding on the flowers of viper's bugloss on August 2nd of the same year. Apparently not looked for since. (Pratt, 2011).
