First observation for Belgium was in 1990 in LX. Nowadays still a very rare species in our country with few observations.
Wingspan 13–17 mm. Head rusty yellow, forewing dark brown with purplish sheen and with four pale yellow white spots, a dorsal spot near the base at a positive angle, one at tornus, and two on the costa on both sides at tornal spot. The only Lampronia species with two costal spots.
The adults fly from late May till July.
So far insufficiently known but Asteraceae is mentioned in literature but needs confirmation. Abroad Cirsium is also mentioned.
Shadow-rich rather wet deciduous forest with an undergrowth of large herbs and shrubs.
