A very rare species in Belgium.
A southern migrant that can reproduce in favourite conditions. Before 2013 only around 35 sightings were known. 2015 and 2016 turned out to be excellent years for this species with many observations.
The adults have been seen from late June towards late October.
The larva lives on pea crops, where it can cause considerable damage. Other food plants are Colutea arborescens, Lathyrus latifolius, Lathyrus sylvestris, Cytisus scoparius and Pisum sativum. Hibernates as an egg or small larva.
