A rare and local species in Belgium, though widespread. More observed in the northern part of the country.
The larva lives in the seed capsules of the host plant. Hibernates as a pupa in an underground cocoon.
The adults come to light and sugar.
The adults fly in two generations a year: from late April till early September with a peak during June.
