Resident. The moth generally occurs singly or sparingly in a few places in both vice-counties, although it is often fairly common at dusk and mv light at Walberton and Fairmile Bottom. Single-brooded, flying mainly from late June to late July. While the species has long been associated with marjoram, larvae also feed on Mentha spp. (Pratt, 2011).
