A very rare and local species in Belgium, only recorded from three provinces. Nowadays only known from the southern part of the country.
Hibernates as a small larva and pupates underground. The adults are active from dusk onwards and later come sparsely to light and sugar.
The adults fly from mid September till mid October.
The larva lives on various grasses like Deschampsia cespitosa, but also on herbaceous plants and shrubs like Crataegus, Prunus spinosa, Cytisus and Rumex.
