In Hampshire and on the Isle of Wight widespread in the mainland vice-counties, but seldom common. It is found in open woodland and bushy places on and off the chalk, but has decreased considerably. Wingspan 38-48 mm. Dotted Rustic Rhyacia simulans has a narrower forewing and never has black outlines to the stigmata; Stout Dart Spaelotis ravida also has a narrower forewing with a fine, black streak at the base, no claviform stigma and a much paler hindwing (MBGBI Vol 9).
