A widespread and rare species in Belgium, mainly observed in the southern part.
The adults fly in one generation a year; from late May till mid August. Ocasionally, a partial second generation occurs during September- early October. They are active from dusk onwards and later come to light.
The larva lives on several herbaceous plants including Vicia cracca and Lathyrus palustris. Hibernates as a small larva and pupates in a cocoon on or just beneath the ground.
