Recorded for the first time in Belgium in 2013. Hitherto a very rare species.
The larva lives in a long silken gallery in which sand and debris is used. It is attached solidly to the foodplant. Pupation in June–July.
The adults rarely fly, they tend to jump in sunshine close to the ground in the vicinity of the food plant.
One generation a year: June–July.
Xerothermic sandy soils, arable land.
