The only good Sussex record this species is of two examples captured by A. F. Griffith "in a rough field near Lewes among its foodplant" in 1929, this referring to the heathery common then surviving at Vert Wood. Elsewhere the moth is single-brooded, flying in June and July, while larvae feed on common bird's-foot-trefoil, although the last mentioned was never confirmed in Sussex (Pratt, 2011).
