Davey, P., 2009: A widespread species found throughout the British Isles, the larva feeding on bedstraw (Galium spp.). In Dorset, the moth frequents two biotypes: the first is unimproved grassland where lady's bedstraw (Galium verum) abounds on chalky soil both inland and along the Jurassic coast; on optimum sites it is common. The second biotype is heathland and grassland on acid soil in the Poole Basin where heath bedstraw (Galium saxatile) grows; in these habitats it is at low density.
