Nationally Scarce A

A resident species, of which there is just one confirmed record - from Crawley Wood in 2007. Earlier records are unsafe, due to the need for genitalia dissection to distinguish this species from M. bradleyi. Elsewhere it is single-brooded, flying mainly from July to April. Larvae feed on willowherb spp. (Pratt, 2011).
