Davey, P., 2009: A rare species in Britain and confined to river habitat in Hampshire and Berkshire, plus coastal localities in south-west Wales, the larva feeding on hemp-agrimony (Eupatorium cannabinum). There are old records from two of Dorset's river systems, the River Piddle and Caundle Brook, the last record about a hundred years ago. It is unlikely that this handsome species survives in the county as its preferred herb-rich chalk-stream gallery habitat has all but been replaced by intensive agriculture usually to the very edge of water courses: Charmouth, (B Morris per Dale), Glanvilles Wootton, (Dale), Caundle's Holt, (Dale), Puddletown, at light on 1 August 1907 (A Morgan), Hyde House, in July 1889 (J Dunne Cook).
