A very rare and local species in Belgium, mainly observed in the Kempen region.
This is an Asian species with a sparsely distribution into Europe and inhabits dry uncultivated ground, dry heathland etc...
The adults fly during June and August. They fly at night and comes to light.
The larvae live on Calluna, Helianthemum and Potentilla. They feed between spun leaves and hibernate in a cocoon amongst the food plant.
