The only Belgian locality was situated in LI. But the species has not been observed since 1998 so it can be considered extinct. There are however still some populations nearby in the Netherlands so recolonisation could still be possible. The oldest record of this species was cited by de Sélys-Longchamps (1870a: xxvii) when he examined the collection of Frein and discovered a male and a female which were taken at Neufchâteau (LX).
The adults fly from mid June till the end of July.
The larva lives on several species of Poaceae, especially on Molinia caerulea.
