This rare species was discovered for the first time in Belgium during July 2006 in different locations in the most southern part of LX.
It was one of the few butterflies to be expected, because there are some small isolated populations in France not far from the Belgian border.
The first years the species established the southern part of Belgium and since then, the species spread out over the whole country.
The adults fly in one generation a year; onwards from late May towards early August.
The larva lives on Rubus fruticosus and R. idaeus. It hibernates as an egg or small larva.
