Morley’s Final Catalogue: Flying before dusk in my Monks Soham paddock, where primrose abounds, in mid-May 1936 (Morley).

Recent Status: No recent Suffolk records. Similar status in Norfolk.

Life Style: The moth is double brooded day flying species found between April and August. The larvae feed in the seed capsules of Primula veris, Rhinanthus minor and Pedicularis sylvatica. Larvae may hibernate in a cocoon. They pupate in a cocoon on the ground.
