A resident species, normally occurring singly or sparingly at mv light in both vice-counties, but often fairly common to common at Newhaven and Walberton. Single-brooded, flying mainly from late July to mid-October and again after hibernation from early February to late May. Larvae feed on flowers and seeds of cow parsley, knotted hedge-parsley and wild parsnip. (Pratt, 2011)
