A rather local and rare species in Belgium, mainly observed in the Kempen.
Hibernates as a larva and pupates in a pendulous cocoon suspended from a plant stem near the ground. The adults become active from dusk onwards and come to light and sugar.
The adults fly in two generations a year: from end of May till late September, the second generation is partial.
The larval foodplants are not exactly known yet, but probably on: Juncus, Carex, Molinia caerulea and Calluna vulgaris those are a few of them.
