Common

A resident species, whose adults normally occur singly or sparingly at mv light in a wide range of habitats in both vice-counties. Sometimes fairly common to common at Chichester and Walberton. Larvae are often locally common to very common in parts of the West. Single-brooded, flying mainly from mid-July to late September, and then after hibernation from mid-February to early April. Larvae feed on the flowers of hemlock water-dropwort. (Pratt, 2011)
