A rather common species in Belgium, more observed in the northern part of the country.
The adults have been observed from March till early October. They come to light.
Indoors this species has a continuous succession of generations.
The larva lives outdoors on various bracket-fungi like Piptoporus, Coriolus, Laetiporus and Polyporus. Indoors it feeds on dry-rot fungus like Serpula, on decayed wood, on wine corks and on a great variety of stored products like grain, nuts and other vegetable products.
