A very rare species in Belgium, only known from the Kempen and LX. Prefers moorland and heatland habitats.
The species is mainly recorded by the larval cases. Cases of females are more easily found as they are attached to tree trunks whereas cases of the males stay very low in the vegetation.
Females are apterous and have much reduced legs and stay in their larval cases during their entire life.
The males emerge in the evening, they fly in the sunshine but are also active at night and are then attracted to light.
.One generation a year: from late April to early July.
Moorland and heatland habitats, dry meadows, peat bogs.
