Morley’s Final Catalogue: Much overlooked, a generally abundant species. Hitherto known here from the vicinity of Hemley, among Stachys in 1933 (Wir) and Beccles (Crf); and two captured at Ampton in 1911-2 (Nurse, Ent. 1913, 195). But actually common and found wherever looked for : Redgrave, Hemley and all round Ipswich.

Recent Status: A rare species in Suffolk.

Life Style: A single brooded species flying from May to July. The larvae feed in the stem of Stachys sylvatica. The larvae hibernate at the root-base and continue feeding during spring. They pupate in the larval habitation.

Identification: A blue grey species with dark brown striations and a variable ochre dorsal blotch. Can sometimes be brown grey and can have the dorsal blotch almost absent. More Info
