Sutton & Beaumont, 1989: Fairly widespread and often common on lower ground in all five vice-counties but less frequent in higher areas. The larvae can be found on red campion where it grows in open situations such as roadside verges but not in shade (PQW).

2012 (CHF): Widespread and fairly common across most of the county. Numbers have grown in the last few years. Since 1990 the second brood has become more common and it now clearly has two overlapping broods, the second being smaller.
