A very rare and local species in Belgium, more observed in the southern part of the country.
The larva lives on various grasses feeding at first on the seeds and later on the leaves. Overwinters as a larva close to the ground and pupates in a cocoon on the soil surface. The adults come infrequently to light but visits sugar frequently.
The adults fly in one generation a year during June and July.
