In Hampshire and on the Isle of Wight widespread and fairly common in woodland throughout the county, but less common on the Island. Wingspan 16-22 mm. Distinguished by the generally dark coloration of the fore- and hindwings, the shining metallic edging of the median fascia and the metallic scaling in the apical area of the forewing [Bradley].
