Morley's Final Catalogue: Not listed. Alistair Aston's supplement to the Final catalogue of the Lepidoptera of Suffolk (1961) states: 'I cannot at the moment find this record'.

Recent Suffolk status: Unlikely to occur in the county, mainly found as a resident species in the New Forest, Hants. Whether this species has ever been recorded from Suffolk is open to question.

Life history: Single-brooded. Flies in warm sunny weather over the heathland habitat, nectaring at flowers.

Identification: Marbled clover lacks the dark shoulder-stripe mark at the base of the forewing.
