Pterophorus tridactyla (Scopoli, 1763)
A resident that usually occurs singly or sparingly but is sometimes fairly common in a wide range of habitats. It is well distributed, probably generally so in large areas, but very local in any numbers. It is single-brooded, flying mainly from early June to late August, sometimes from late May or to late September, and occasionally to mid October. The larvae feed on bindweed. (Pratt, 2011).
