Very local and rare in the region. Occurs in damp, low-lying grassland and on unimproved chalk downland. Historical records indicate that it was found widely but locally. Very recently, it has reappeared in the region, with a colony found on low-lying farmland in Berkshire, a single adult in a south Oxfordshire garden and a colony near Oxford.
