Local in rough pastures and grassland in parts of southern England, southern Wales and southern Ireland. In Hampshire and on the Isle of Wight records are widely, but very sparsely, distributed throughout. Wingspan 15-19 mm. The overall pink or pinkish buff general coloration of the forewing distinguishes this species from C. striana and C. rufana; furthermore, in C. striana the median fascia is strongly developed while in C. rufana the forewing is comparatively broad and the general coloration is darker, varying from dull olive-brown to ferruginous-brown [Bradley]. Larva feeds within roots of Sow-thistle and Dandelion.
