First observation for Belgium was in 2008. Still a very rare species, mainly distributed in the eastern provinces of Belgium.
The larva spins a silken web along the stem of the foodplant, leading into the ground where it hides when disturbed.
Adults like to rest during daytime on the flowers of e.g. Jasione montana or Convolvulus arvense.
One generation a year: mainly June–July, but sometimes onwards from late April till mid August.
Dry sandy soil.
