A very rare and local species in Belgium, the rarest of all 5 native Hoplodrina species. The species has his stronghold in the limestone area, and it occurs in xerothermic stony, rocky places with scattered vegetation.
Hibernates as a larva. The adults come to light.
The adults fly in one generation a year: from late June till end of August.
There is little known about the life cycle of the larva, but it is believed that it lives on a variety of herbaceous low plants like Taraxacum, Plantago, Galium, Rumex and Oxalis acetosella.
