The first record for our country was on 09 July 2004 (AN). Nowadays still a very rare and local species in Belgium, but it is slowly expanding its range.
The adults fly in one, sometimes two generations a year; from mid May till end of August. They come sparsely to light, but are also reported from sugaring.
The larva lives on a variety of marsh plants, like Cicuta virosa, Menyanthes trifoliata, Lysimachia, Solanum dulcamara, Nephrodium thelypteris, Convolvulus arvensis, Plantago, Arctium etc... Hibernates as a pupa in an underground cocoon.
