Nationally scarce (Nb) on open grassland in widely scattered localities throughout Britain and Ireland, absent from the extreme north of Scotland and the northern half of Ireland (MBGBI Vol 3). In Hampshire records are thinly distributed across much of the county, and it is evidently overlooked. Not recorded from the Isle of Wight to date. Wingspan 7-8 mm. Only reliably recorded by dissection of the genitalia. Larva mines leaves of Annual Meadow-grass.
