Notes: Local in limestone grassland, chalk downland, heathland, sand-dunes and woodland margins throughout much of England, a priority species under the UK Biodiversity Action Plan. In Hampshire and on the Isle of Wight has disappeared from many localities since the 1950s, mainly as a result of habitat loss, and now known from only one locality in north Hampshire (Odiham Common), and one in south Hampshire (Martin Down), with occasional, scattered records elsewhere. Wingspan male 25-31 mm, female 22-25 mm. Larva feeds on Common Sorrel.
