Davey, P., 2009: A frequent species over much of Britain, but local in northern Scotland, the larva feeding in the seed capsules of red campion (Silene dioica), white campion (Silene latifolia), and bladder campion (Silene vulgaris). In Dorset, the moth is at low density but widespread. It rises to frequent on chalky soil where arable and grassy verges support white campion, and in the west of the county on hedgebanks and in woods where red campion thrives.
