Since the first record in 1978 on mainland Cornwall, there have a number additional occurrences, mostly on the Isles of Scilly.

The Salthouse example illustrated was the first record for Norfolk.

Abroad, the species flies in May/June and August/September, and the larvae feed on a range of low-growing plants.
