The larva makes white blotches on the leaves of Anthyllis, Onobrychis and Trifolium species. The larvae of the summer generation feed on the blossom and seed-pods. Larvae of the spring generation pupate in detritus on the ground, those of the summer generation in the flower-heads of Anthyllis and perhaps the other foodplants.
