Notes: Nationally scarce (Nb) in damp woodland in parts of southern and south-western England, and southern and western Wales. In southern Hampshire, not uncommon in parts of the New Forest, along the edges of damp rides, but very scarce in the north. Not recorded from the Isle of Wight to date. Wingspan 27-30 mm. Most likely to be confused with Water Carpet L. suffumata, but smaller and termen on forewing more rounded. Larva feeds on Marsh Bedstraw and Fen Bedstraw, over-wintering as a pupa.
