Habitat and ecology
P. pullata occurs in various open habitats such as grasslands, sea walls, dyke edges, dunes, heathland, moorlands, blanket bog, mires, woodland clearings, old quarries and roadside verges. In lowland agricultural Britain it is perhaps found most often in long-established tussocky grassland. Adults of both sexes occur mainly in early to mid-summer, occasionally persisting until the autumn.
