Known from old records in NA and LX. Now extinct, but there are some small populations not so far from the Belgian border!
The adults fly usually in two generations a year; onwards from April towards June and again from late July till early September.
The larva lives on the flowers and the seeds of Thymus, Satureja, Lavendula, Mentha and Calamintha nepeta. It is attended by ants of the genera Lasius and Myrmica. The species hibernates as a larva or as a pupa.
