This very rare species has not been seen in Belgium for quite some time.
It hibernates as a partly fully-grown caterpillar and becoming mature around April. They are digged in the soil superficially at daytime.
The adults come to light.
The moths are on the wing from June towards August.
The polyphagous caterpillar lives on roots and ground-level plant parts.
