Davey, P., 2009: A local species confined to southern Britain, the larva feeding on bedstraw (Galium spp.) and possibly hawthorn (Crataegus monogyna). There is just one record for this species in Dorset: St Ives, at MV on 23 July 1987 (Dr J Clarke). A north-easterly airflow was established at the time, and dispersal from a north Hampshire source was possible on this occasion.
