The wingspan measurements are based on Razowski 2002. The provincial distribution is given according to Kerppola & al. (Baptria supplement 1995) and Kullberg & al. (Sahlbergia 2001). The "rarity" is more exactly the point score (m/f) of the Entomological Exchange Association in Helsinki (2000): 1-25 common, 30-60 rare or local, 70-100 very rare (less than 200 specimens recorded). Hostplant data and descriptive characters are combined from different sources. The flight time is only a coarse approximation in the South of Finland (adapted from Svensson, 1993); there may be as much difference as four weeks between an early and a late summer.
