A rather common species throughout Belgium, but more frequently observed in the south of the country.
The adults fly in one generation a year; from late April till late June. Rarely a partial second generation occurs till early August. They are active during daytime.
The larva feeds on various species of low plants like Teucrium scorodonia. Hibernates as a pupa underground or among plant debris.
