This rare species was discovered for the first time in Belgium during July 2006 in different locations in the most southern part of the province of Luxembourg . 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 species was present again during 2007 at the same locations and at present (2008), the species is established now in very small numbers in the southern part of the Gaume.
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.
