Common and widespread only in the Southern half of the UK. Habitat includes: low vegetated areas including grassland, scrub, woodland clearings, wasteland, meadows. Associated with many herbaceous plants particularly various species of St John's-wort. I've seen it on Perennial rye grass, Common bird's-foot trefoil, Oxeye daisy, dandelion.
