Please note that the NBN Gateway map service has been terminated as of 1 April 2017.

As soon as a replacement map service is available, distribution maps will hopefully appear here again.

In the meantime, you can get some idea of distribution from the NBN Atlas website.

Occupying woodland margins, chalky downland and sea-cliffs, this species is widely distributed but local in the south of England and Wales, and scarce in northern England and Scotland.

Like many of its close relatives, it feeds on bedstraw (Galium).

The adults fly between June and August.
