A very rare species in Belgium.
The adults fly from late June till August. They are easily disturbed during the day and are active from late afternoon and later come to light.
The larva lives in the flowers of a great variety of herbaceous plants, a.o. Crepis, Taraxacum, and Tussilago. Hibernates as half-grown larva and pupates in a loose cocoon among plant debris.
