General comments:
Widespread but local resident.

Often overlooked as a species of Pyrausta (Crambidae) and so ignored. It flies in afternoon sunshine and most records originate from butterfly recorders. Adults are recorded 'nectaring' at flowers.

Recorded in 28 (68%) of 41 10k Squares.
First Recorded in 1887.
Last Recorded in 2024.
