A recent (2009) arrival in Belgium. Nowadays still very rare and only a few observations in different provinces.
The adults are active during the day and later come to light.
The adults fly in two generations a year; from May till September.
The larva feeds in stalks on various grasses and different species of herbaceous plants including: Chenopodium, Rumex acetosella and Polygonum bistorta.
