A common species throughout Belgium, but more frequently observed in the north.
The adults fly from June till the end of August. They are active in the evening and later come to light.
The larva lives in a slight web concealed in the moss, but ejecting its frass onto the surface. It prefers Hypnum cupressiforme, although it can possibly be found on other species of moss growing on the ground in damp places. It hibernates. Pupation in a silken cocoon amongst the moss.
